I believe staff should always be heard.


Julie says: “I became a Guardian to help people find the confidence within themselves to be able to talk about their concerns at work. I strongly believe that staff should never be in a position where they feel that what they have to say will not be heard. Being a Guardian means that by listening to staff and supporting them through their decision-making process on what action they wish to take, they are able to speak up about issues with confidence and without fear of recrimination.”
