NICE Guideline NG189 - Safeguarding adults in care homes

Safeguarding champions are staff already working within the care home, with good knowledge of safeguarding policy and procedure, who help ensure that procedures are followed and are available for discussion. They also ensure reflective learning about best practice in preventing abuse and neglect. Champions may also offer practical and emotional support to those worried about the impact of raising concerns. They are not a replacement or alternative to the safeguarding lead.
