By becoming a support member you will provide invaluable assistance to your fellow ICAEW members.
The Support Members' Scheme exists to offer confidential support to members who are in difficulty. Being a support member is a rewarding experience and you can provide much needed guidance.
Joining the scheme is easy:
- contact us to register your interest
- receive information on the role of a support member
- discuss your role with an experienced staff member
You will be trained as a professional advisor and develop necessary skills to provide quality guidance.
Support member roles and responsibilities are to:
- offer support to members;
- act as go-between for members and the ICAEW, when the member is reluctant to enquire directly;
- understand and explain the ICAEW's investigative/conciliation/ disciplinary/regulatory/monitoring functions to members;
- direct enquirers to relevant ICAEW support services or appropriate ICAEW literature (e.g. help sheets);
- advise members, if required, to seek appropriate legal advice. If necessary, consulting the ICAEW lists of specialist solicitors.
