To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment he has made of the value of the process of safeguarding adult reviews into the deaths of people sleeping rough.
Answer (Caroline Dinenage)
The Department has not made any specific assessment of the value of the process of safeguarding adult reviews into the deaths of people sleeping rough.
The Care Act statutory guidance states that Safeguarding Adult Boards are required to order a Safeguarding Adult Review if an adult dies in their area and there is concern that partner agencies could have done more to prevent the death and protect the adult. This is because Safeguarding Adult Reviews are about learning and improving to prevent future deaths.
