Adults :: Safeguarding :: Evidence of what works

Although the local authority leads on safeguarding vulnerable adults the current good partnership arrangements for conducting investigations, information sharing, training and supporting staff has been recognised in a recent independent audit of safeguarding arrangements in Medway. Following public awareness campaigns the number of referrals from the victim, family or friends has slowly increased. Medway Council is ranked second, in its comparator group, for the highest number of referrals from this source. This is a good indicator that safeguarding awareness is good in the community and routes for reporting are known.
