The Torbay & Devon Safeguarding Adults Board (TDSAP) was founded in 2021 by Devon County Council and Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust as a requirement of the Care Act 2014. It provides strategic leadership for adult safeguarding across Torbay & Devon.

The TDSAP is completely independent, with an independent chair.

The Torbay & Devon Safeguarding Adults Board (TDSAP) is the collective name for the partners that work with the board to safeguard adults across Devon.

The TDSAP acts as the key mechanism for agreeing how these agencies work together to safeguard and promote the safety and wellbeing of adults at risk and/or in vulnerable situations. It does this by co-ordinating what each of the TDSAP members does and makes sure that they do it effectively.

The TDSAP multi-agency partnership, aims to promote awareness and understanding of abuse and neglect among service users, carers, professionals, care providers and the wider community. It works to generate community interest and engagement in safeguarding to make sure that ‘safeguarding is everyone’s business’.

The TDSAP also commissions Safeguarding Adult Reviews for cases with poor outcomes, to make sure that lessons are learned for the future.
