Safeguarding Champions

Safeguarding champions are professionals who have been nominated within their organisation to act as a conduit of information from the HSCP Learning Hub to the organisation in which they work and similarly will share information with the Learning Hub on what is working well or where the challenges are in their own organisation. The number of Safeguarding Champions within an organisation will be decided by that organisation and will depend on its size and complexity. Safeguarding champions may already be in a safeguarding role or, for some, this may be a new role, depending on decisions made by the organisation. In each organisation there will be a safeguarding champion lead, or more than one if necessary, who will act as a coordinator and will support with how best to disseminate learning, training needs and supervision. Safeguarding Champion leads may be members of the HSCP stakeholder group.
