The Kent and Medway Safeguarding Adults Board (KMSAB) commissions multi-agency safeguarding adults training for staff from the statutory sector. We have a number of workshops available to professionals who wish to develop their understanding of safeguarding in adults.

Course booking update

Unfortunately a decision has been taken to suspend all our planned multi-agency training workshops for the foreseeable future, due to the current national Coronavirus (COVID 19) situation. The situation will be kept under review in the longer term, as the national picture evolves, and we hope to be in a position to offer some training later in the year.
