SAIF Support: here for members
During these difficult times, National SAIF President Mark Porteous wants to remind members and their staff that they can call on the free counselling service SAIF Support at any time if they feel they need help.
He said: “While our team of officers, under the leadership of Chief Executive Terry Tennens, is working round-the-clock to ensure that the latest advice from Government and other stakeholders is shared with you in a timely fashion, I would like to remind you of SAIF Support, our free member-benefit counselling service which exists to help you and your staff when faced with mental health challenges.
“Many funeral directors face some dark days ahead. But never forget why you do what you do. Your work is vital and makes a huge and measurable difference. Be proud of who you are, remember what you have achieved and let’s demonstrate to society why independent, family-run firms are the best in the profession.
“Please, don’t be afraid to use SAIF Support – the service is completely confidential and might just save a life in the coming months.”Tags: counselling, COVID-19, guidance, Mark Porteous, support
