Meet our new Freedom to Speak Up ambassadors

Our Freedom to Speak Up Guardian, Jackie Rawlings, would like to introduce our new Freedom to Speak Up (FTSU) ambassadors to you. Our 18 new FTSU ambassadors will play an important role in supporting the Guardian role, positively promoting key messages about speaking up and widening the reach of the FTSU agenda. They will act as champions for the FTSU agenda and have a number of responsibilities.


  • Advocate for staff and workers in their work areas
  • Contribute ideas about how the Trust can develop an open and transparent culture which encourages staff to raise concerns
  • Remain impartial yet supportive throughout and show compassion and empathy to all
  • Encourage staff to raise concerns at the earliest opportunity
  • ‘Champion’ a culture where speaking up and raising concerns becomes ‘the norm’
  • Promote all Trust approved tools, avenues and training opportunities to workers on raising concerns
  • Feedback instances where people have had difficulties in raising concerns to the Freedom to Speak Up Guardian
  • Attend key activities such as training, workshops and meetings     
  • Be part of a network that works together to create a culture which is open and learns from mistakes
