Departure of Independent Chair
28 July 2022
After 12 years of leading Nottinghamshire’s Safeguarding Board as our Independent Chair, Allan Breeton will be leaving his post in September.
Allan has led the partnership Board from pre-statutory times, through the implementation of the Care Act and its subsequent impact upon safeguarding adults, ensuring that Nottinghamshire was well-prepared for the challenges ahead.
Driving forward the Making Safeguarding Personal ethos has seen a change in culture and approach to safeguarding adults, moving from ‘doing to’, to working with those adults who need our support in a safeguarding context, and ensuring that the views, wishes, and feelings of those adults are front and centre of any safeguarding work subsequently undertaken.
Ever a champion for collaborative and partnership working, during Allan’s tenure the Board has grown and continues to extend its engagement across our community.
More recently Allan has worked across the partnership to ensure safeguarding remains central in-service delivery across Nottinghamshire under the unprecedented challenges faced through the Pandemic. Allan leaves the board ready to face new challenges set in the new three-year strategic plan. This approach embodies a ‘keep it simple philosophy’ to drive improvements across the partnership.
We thank you for your dedication and commitment to supporting the work of Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board over the past 12 years and wish you all the best for the future.
A new Independent Chair will be announced in due course.
