Kent and Medway Safeguarding Adults Board Strategic Plan 2022 to 2025

We would like to hear your views on the new Kent and Medway Safeguarding Adults Board (KMSAB) Strategic Plan 2022 to 2025.

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 support and promote their wellbeing, with all partners working together effectively, ensuring 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.

Your feedback is important in helping to ensure that we have set a suitably ambitious but achievable Plan, which meets the needs and expectations of Kent and Medway residents and promotes a partnership approach to the delivery of the Plan.

Following the end of the consultation a report will be produced, summarising the feedback received. This feedback will be used to help finalise the Strategic Plan, which alongside the consultation report will be presented to the KMSAB before the Plan is agreed and finalised.
