Hertfordshire Safeguarding Adults Board
The Hertfordshire Safeguarding Adults Board (HSAB) is the key body for the coordination of the activity of the various organisations, statutory, independent and voluntary, in Hertfordshire to safeguard and promote the welfare and well-being of ‘adults at risk’.
Safeguarding is everyone’s business and responsibility; HSAB is a multi-agency partnership, with representation from the organisations and constituencies that work with and support the most vulnerable members of our community.
Find out more about how we are working to safeguard vulnerable members of our community through the HSAB website.
Hertsmere Health and Wellbeing Partnership
The Health and Wellbeing Partnership is the formal representative body for Hertsmere Borough Council and the Local Strategic Partnership.
It is the first point of contact and consultee on matters under consideration by the County Health and Wellbeing Board, County Health Scrutiny Committee and NHS Hertfordshire, including reviewing proposed changes to local service provision and assessing the impact on the local community.
The Health and Wellbeing Partnership works together to develop and support initiatives to address the causes of ill health and to promote healthy and active lifestyles for all residents.
Hertsmere Health and Wellbeing Strategy
Health and wellbeing affects each and every one of us. We each have a responsibility to ensure that good health and wellbeing is promoted in our families, workplaces and communities. Many Hertsmere residents enjoy good health and wellbeing. However, there are still significant problems, such as the level of physical activity in children and young people, smoking and road accidents.
With the health and wellbeing of those who live, work and visit Hertsmere in mind, we have developed the Hertsmere Health and Wellbeing Strategy based on local data and residents views. The Hertsmere Health Survey was undertaken in the summer 2014 by Community Action Hertsmere to help inform the work of the Health and Wellbeing partnership. This Health and Wellbeing Strategy will be implemented by the council across all of the services and through the local Health and Wellbeing Partnership. The annual action plan will show all the work undertaken which contributes to the delivery of this strategy and the Hertfordshire Health and Wellbeing Strategy, and Public Health Strategy.
