Safeguarding Adult Reviews
What are Safeguarding Adult Reviews (SARs)
Safeguarding Adult Reviews are not inquiries into how someone died or suffered injury, or to find out who is responsible.
- look at any lessons we can learn from the case about the way all local professionals and agencies worked together
- review the effectiveness of our safeguarding adults policy and protocols
- inform and improve local safeguarding practice for all agencies involved
- deliver an overview report and recommendations for future action.
Read our procedure for safeguarding adult reviews or email KMSAB@kent.gov.uk to request a safeguarding adults review form.
Do not use this form to report abuse. If you have concerns about an adult, visit our 'Report Abuse' page for more information.
Content of a referral
A referral is your gateway into a service that you or the individual has identified that they need. A referral without the right information can result in time wasted, health and / or social needs deterioration, reactive escalation and most importantly the right support not being offered. Take a look at the 'why the content of any referral is so important' document which provides guidance on how to effectively complete a referral.
