About Us

As of the 6th April 2016, the Gwent-wide Adult Safeguarding Board is a Statutory Board as set out in the Social Services and Well-Being (Wales) Act 2014. The Board was formed in 2011 covering the local authority areas of Blaenau Gwent, Caerphilly, Monmouthshire, Newport and Torfaen.

Together with other organisations, we have a shared responsibility to ensure that we actively prevent adults being abused and neglected and safeguard those who are at risk of abuse.
