This study explores the views of community nurses and their perceptions of safeguarding supervision. Thirty-seven front-line nurses from a community Foundation Trust completed an online survey tool ‘Qualtrics’. Ethics approval was granted from both the Trust, Health Research Authority and the University. Results showed that the model of safeguarding supervision was not important in the process, the preferred mode was a combination of one to one and group. The factors perceived as most important were feeling safe/safe environment, experienced practitioner and critical reflection. The ‘qualities’ of the supervisor deemed most important was prior training in supervision skills, leadership skills were not deemed as important. Most felt that the supervisor should be from the same professional background. ​
