Message from George Verry, Chief Executive Officer
UFBA was established expressly to represent and promote the interests of member fire brigades.
Advocacy is the key to fulfilling this objective.
To set out the enduring high level principles we will follow to deliver effective advocacy, we have established a UFBA Advocacy Charter.
The principles include:
- The context for our advocacy and the actions we will take
- Target audiences - who we will proactively advocate the interests of our members and promote the cause of volunteerism to
- Ethical principles - the standards we will follow to deliver effective advocacy
- Member consultation - we will consult members to ensure we accurately portray the position of a majority of brigades
- Effectiveness - we will periodically assess our advocacy programme and determine opportunities for improvement.
Our actions during the fire services review consultation and the ensuing well-regarded submission is a prime example of UFBA following the Charter’s principles to deliver effective advocacy.
The next steps are to develop a three-year Advocacy Strategy and, where relevant, annual Advocacy Action Plans for specific projects.
