Have your say on the Kent and Medway Safeguarding Adults Board draft strategic plan

Date added: 27 April 2022

Residents are being asked for their views on the new Kent and Medway Safeguarding Adults Board (KMSAB) Strategic Plan 2022-2025 which has gone out to public consultation.

The KMSAB is a statutory, independently led multi-agency partnership which exists to make sure that all member agencies are working together to help keep Kent and Medway’s adults safe from harm and protect their rights.

The aim of the new plan is to protect and prevent adults with care and support needs from the risk of abuse, or neglect and promote their wellbeing, with all partners working together effectively that the safeguarding system is always improving through shared learning.

The plan focuses on three main priorities:

  • Promoting person centred safeguarding (putting adults at the centre of our work)
  • Strengthening system assurance (ensuring that organisations are working well together to support adults
  • Embedding improvement and shaping future practice (helping the organisations we work with to keep getting better).

And includes a detailed action plan outlining how these priorities will be met over the next three years.

The consultation is running for 8 weeks and closes on 20 June 2022.
