Healthwatch Lancashire is strongly connected to the Lancashire Safeguarding Adults Board.

“Safeguarding” means protecting people’s health, wellbeing and human rights, and enabling them to live free from harm, abuse and neglect.

Healthwatch Lancashire is able to contribute by presenting information which has been shared with us to prevent Safeguarding incidents occurring.
