Staff Supporters Scheme launch

Staff focus

The Staff Supporters Scheme

The Staff Supporters Scheme is made up of a network of volunteers, all drawn from our staff community, who have received specially designed training. They act as a signposting and guidance service to provide information directly to staff, helping colleagues who don't know who to contact about a particular problem they’re experiencing.

Staff Supporters are able to provide confidential assistance on a wide range of issues, from queries about career advice or flexible working, to concerns about working relationships. They can also provide guidance if members of staff are unsure about who they need to speak to for help on a particular issue.
