Explore how the Community Reference Group for adult safeguarding will become a sustainable adjunct to the Kingston Safeguarding Adults Board: 

Gather resident experience of safeguarding to inform service developments and support positive personal outcomes. It was agreed that the Adult Safeguarding Community Reference Group (CRG) would continue to be available through HW Kingston for residents to discuss their safeguarding experiences in an independent, safe space. Anonymised CRG reporting from HW Kingston would then be shared accordingly with the Kingston Safeguarding Adults Board (KSAB). However, because of Covid-19, no CRG meetings took place during this period. HW Kingston continues its active participation in the KSAB.
