Welcome from the Safeguarding Adults Board

About the Board

Welcome from the independent Chair

Welcome to the Kingston Safeguarding Adults Board website.

The role of the Safeguarding Adults Board is governed by the Care Act 2014. The Boards role is to seek assurance that agencies are working together effectively to keep adults safe from abuse and neglect. This website is intended to give an overview of the board, its activities and to provide information on how adults at risk are protected. I hope you find it useful and informative.

My professional background is in policing. I left the Metropolitan Police after 30 years' service working across several London boroughs. Most recently, in the final years of my service I worked in Wandsworth, where I was the Detective Chief Inspector responsible for safeguarding and criminal investigations. It has always been my aim to help people and communities, and I will continue to do this through my role as the interim Independent Chair of the Kingston Safeguarding Adults Board.

With best wishes,

Richard Neville
