ICAEW charity appoints ambassadors

THE CHARTERED Accountants’ Benevolent Association has appointed three “ambassadors” to help accountants with financial, health and emotional problems.

The ambassadors are Patrick St Leger, who is a support volunteer at CABA; Andrew Campbell-Hart, a CABA debt volunteer; and Carol McLachlan, who also works as a CABA trainer.

The ambassadors, who all come from an accountancy background, are part of a move to make CABA as accessible as possible to chartered accountants. They will attend regional events across the country.

Karen Handcock, volunteers co-ordinator at CABA, said: “It is impossible for CABA to have representatives on the ground at every conference and meeting that we would like to attend, especially in the far flung corners of the country.”

“However, [our ambassadors will be] able to show a human presence at more places where chartered accountants and their dependants are likely to be present and offer help and advice on a group or one-to-one basis.”

CABA was formed in 1886. It supports current and former members of the ICAEW and their dependent family members.
