New Safeguarding Adult Review published

Source By:

A new Safeguarding adult review has been published

A safeguarding adults review (SAR) is a multi-agency learning process. It aims to identify and promote good practice, effective learning and recommendations for future practice so that deaths or serious harm can be prevented from happening again.

Its purpose is not to investigate how a death or serious incident happened or to hold any individual or organisation to account. Other processes exist for that, including: coroner's and criminal proceedings, disciplinary procedures, employment law and systems of service and professional regulation, such as CQC and the Nursing and Midwifery Council, the Health and Care Professions Council, and the General Medical Council. 

The CHSAB must arrange a SAR:

  • when an adult in its areas dies as a result of abuse or neglect, whether known or suspected, and there is concern that partner agencies could have worked more effectively to protect the adult
  • if an adult in its area has not died, but the board knows or suspects that the adult has experienced serious abuse or neglect - eg the individual would have been likely to die but for an intervention, or has suffered permanent harm or has reduced capacity or quality of life (whether because of physical or psychological effects) as a result of the abuse or neglect
  • in any other situations involving an adult in its area with needs for care and support

NHS Long Term Plan

Source By: City & Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group

The NHS Long Term Plan is to ensure the NHS is fit for the future. It aims to give everyone the best start in life, will deliver world-class care for major health problems such as cancer and mental health, and will help people age well.  

The plan has been developed with frontline health and care staff, patients, their families, and other experts, who will continue to shape how it is put in place across the country. 

Following our series of ‘Let’s Talk’ engagement events, over the next few months City and Hackney CCG will be working with patients, the public and partners - including local councils, the voluntary and community sector and social care – to develop local plans to turn the Long Term Plan national ambitions into local improvements for patients, building on the progress we've already made over the last few years.

About Woodberry Down


In the last 5 years Woodberry Down has been tagged as one of Europe's biggest single-site estate regeneration projects. According to Hackney Council, the regeneration of Woodberry Down will see more than 5,500 new modern, high-quality homes built alongside three new public parks, retail space, and a range of new community buildings including a new community library, a new school, a new children's centre and employment space.


Development brings loads of benefits and commensurate challenges depending on the area and residents. Woodberry Down has a greater proportion of children and young adults under 25 and middle aged and older adults aged 45 plus. 27.6% of the residents are white, 15.6% Black African and 6.4% Caribbean. There are greater proportions of residents from white other and black African groups and a lower proportion of white British residents in Woodberry Down than in Hackney as a whole. Woodberry Down has proportionately more lone parents (19.8%), one person household (36.5%) and fewer cohabiting couples without children and multi person households than the Hackney average. Around 59.5% of Woodberry Down residents are Council tenants compared to 43.7% in Hackney as a whole. The employment rate in Woodberry Down is lower than the Hackney average with considerably fewer full-time workers. There are greater proportions of students and other economically inactive people in Woodberry Down than Hackney as a whole. 36.7% of Woodberry Down residents are economically inactive; this is higher than the Hackney average.


The Need


Health and wellbeing has been identified as a major issue of concern within the Woodberry Down community. Residents are not aware of key community assets, the services they provide and how to access these provisions. The Manor House Development Trust (MHDT) will be organising a series of community engagement events and trainings with the theme around health and wellbeing for residents in Woodberry Down. Activities will include; presentations, workshops, training, information stalls, frebbies and referral pathways. Participants will be able to get more information about services available within the community, engage with service providers, build their knowledge and attend a free accredited Mental Health First Aid course.


The MHDT as a charitable organisation has embedded itself within the Woodberry Down community to deliver services which are value for money and create lasting benefits for the last 11 years. This series of workshops and training achieves 4 of the MHDT business objectives; empowering people, influencing policy makers, connecting people and organisations and creating space.

1.    To train 16 Woodberry Down residents as mental health first aiders.

2.    To engage 70 Woodberry Down residents who will become health and wellbeing advocates.

3.    To develop a map of Woodberry Down with annotated locations of health and wellbeing providers and services.

4.    To co-produce a report on health and wellbeing in Woodberry Down.
