About the Champions

‘Guarding people to be safe’

The What’sUp Champions are people that use services, but they also support other individuals to have a voice. The Champions help people to have the confidence in talking about any worries they may have about their safety, or about something that may be upsetting them. The champions also come together to work on co-production projects to improve services.

The aim is to have open conversations around safeguarding that focus on guarding people to be safe and improving services.

Listen to what the champions and professionals have to say….
