Adult safeguarding legislation and guidance

Guidance for Kent and Medway

The Multi-Agency Safeguarding Adults Policy, Protocols and Guidance for Kent and Medway (PDF, 811.2 KB) sets out  the legal responsibilities and how organisations work together to safeguard adults. It also provides general guidance on how to recognise and react to abuse or suspected abuse against adults at risk.

As with all Kent and Medway Safeguarding Adults Board’s Policy and procedures, this is a live document. It is reviewed and updated annually by the Practice, Policy and Procedures Working Group. If you have any comments or suggestions for improvement, please contact the KMSAB Manager by emailing
