Would you like to help spread the word about the Charitable Trust by becoming an SPCT Champion? SPCT Champions are invaluable to the Trust and helps to ensure that when a colleague is in need they know we are there to help. Being an SPCT Champion will not take up a lot of your time, but will make a big difference to the Trust and our members by helping to keep us visible.

Champions are asked to:

  • encourage people to join the Trust (and give out membership forms)
  • remind colleagues they can contact the Trust for support at times of difficulty
  • keep notice boards up to date with Trust posters
  • alert the SPCT staff to opportunities to give talks or set up a stall
  • promote ‘key messages’ about the Trust (below)
  • relay feedback as appropriate about the Trust to the Trust staff (be a critical friend)

Champions do not give guidance or advice on behalf of the Trust to members who are experiencing difficulties but should encourage people to talk to Trust Advisers.
