Joanna was a woman in her 30s. She had a learning disability and lived independently in Bristol. A Safeguarding Adults Review (SAR) was commissioned by the Keeping Bristol Safe Partnership (KBSP) after a series of incidents in which Joanna experienced serious physical, sexual and financial abuse.
The full SAR report has not been published to protect Joanna's identity as she continues to live in the area. It is important that lessons are learned from Safeguarding Adults Reviews. A learning briefing has been created for professionals to use in individual learning, team meeting briefings or individual supervision to ensure that the findings are disseminated widely.
