(Report of Chief Executive)
The report sought endorsement of an updated Safeguarding Policy and Reporting Procedure for Children, Young People and Adults at Risk. Attention was drawn to the different reporting arrangements and responsibilities arising from the change of the Kent Safeguarding Children Board to become the Kent and Medway Safeguarding Children Multi-Agency Partnership (KSCMP) and to the reporting of concerns about adult safeguarding.
Following consideration by the Communities and Housing Advisory Board, the Cabinet Member for Community Services resolved that:
(1) the revised version of the Safeguarding Policy and Reporting Procedure for Children, Young People and Adults at Risk be endorsed; and
(2) Councillor M Rhodes be the Member Champion for Safeguarding.
