Surrey Appropriate Adult Volunteer Service (SAAVS)

Description

The Surrey Appropriate Adult Volunteer Service offers support to vulnerable adults and young people who find themselves detained in Police custody. It provides trained people to act as Appropriate Adults to ensure that the detainee is treated correctly and that the detainee understands, as fully as possible, what is happening in Police custody.

SAAVS provides this service to Surrey Police, via a direct booking system, and is a partnership project headed by the Diocese of Guildford Department for Social Responsibility and funded by Surrey County Council, Adult Services and the Surrey Youth Justice Service.
