A message from our Senior Independent Director
As Senior Independent Director, it is my pleasure to represent the voice of our members. In my role, I am here to listen to any feedback or concerns you may have about the way we do things here at Shepherds Friendly. It is also my duty to ensure that the Board continues to always act in your best interests.
In particular, I am responsible for appraising our Board Chair’s performance by way of hearing the views of other Directors, our people and members and providing honest, constructive feedback. I am also the Whistleblowing champion for the Society, empowering our staff to challenge anything they believe is wrong or that may go against our members’ best interests.
Having been on the Board since 2016, I am proud of the commitment and enthusiasm shown by our staff to provide the very best experience for all our members. In order for us to do this and to remain true to our promises, we always need to listen to the feedback and opinions of those at the heart of our business: you, our members.
Overall, I am here to be your voice; Shepherds Friendly is a mutual, which means that it is owned by and run for our members, so your views are important to me. I can also act as an additional point of contact if you feel our normal channels haven’t worked for you. If you would like to get in touch with me to share your thoughts, please send an email to [email protected]. Together, we can ensure that Shepherds Friendly continues to put its members front and centre of everything we do.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.
Senior Independent Director
