Our S.A.F.E. icon

The S.A.F.E. icon is our way of helping consumers find out what infection control measures a care home has been taking over and above government guidelines or requirements. It tells you that a care home has either made available a relevant regulatory assessment or report, or has confirmed that it is using certain infection control products or services. For more information on how a care home gets a S.A.F.E. icon, click here.

The S.A.F.E. icon does not mean that a care home is infection-free (or will remain infection-free), or has passed any external testing or accreditation process. It is not intended to constitute an accreditation or endorsement of a care home, or advice about infection control.

We do not review the assessments or reports for care homes, the S.A.F.E. icon simply means that this has been made available. We also do not inspect care homes or verify that they are using the infection control products or services they claim to use, or that they are using them correctly, and we do not review the products or services themselves. We do not monitor, and are not responsible for, any errors or false claims in information which is provided to us by third parties.
