Kent and Medway Safeguarding Adults Learning Event


KMSAB SAR Learning Event Improving Partnership Working – Managing Complexity and Capacity


Tuesday 5 July 2022 - 9.30am to 12.30pm, via Microsoft Teams

This free half-day event is designed for multi-agency partners across Kent and Medway, to bring together key learning and develop a shared understanding of engagement strategies and triggers for intervention where capacity, unwise decision making, and cultural understandings may be a feature.


Over the last few years there have been several Safeguarding Adults Reviews (SARs) and Domestic Homicide Reviews (DHRs) in Kent and Medway which have highlighted common themes in how complex needs and risks are managed. These have included issues, such as considering capacity and unwise decision making, engagement and disengagement with services, and the impact of cultural beliefs and understandings.


Event aims:

  • To develop a shared vision and understanding of holistic care and support, and the role and responsibilities in relation to adult safeguarding with complex individuals

  • To identify how learning can be embedded across and between partner agencies, to strengthen safeguarding responses

  • To develop and agree key messages for participants to take back into practice, with the aim of promoting consistency across KMSAB partner organisations

Target Audience:


The session is for frontline practitioners and managers. Attendees need to have a good basic understanding of the Mental Capacity Act (MCA) 2005 and its application. There will also be a requirement to complete pre-reading, which will be circulated prior to the event.
