This month, the ‘WhatsUp Champion’ launch event was attended by residents and staff from Norley Hall Care Home at St. Peter’s Pavilion in Hindley.
WhatsUp Champions are individuals based in a care setting who serve as advocates, are the voice for others and look out for their fellow residents. The programme was started by Wigan Council and Thrive.
The launch event, organised by Wigan Council, was an open discussion on safeguarding and safety.
Pat and Margaret, residents at Norley Hall Care Home, are WhatsUp Champions and attended the event with Home Manager, Kathryn and Activity Coordinator, Julia.
Champion Pat was handpicked to appear in a promotional video by the Council explaining the group’s purpose, its importance and why she got involved.
