One of the objectives of NAGS is ‘to promote the welfare of members of the Association and take any appropriate action for the advancement and training of its members. ‘
In short this means that NAGS will always do it’s best to support you whether you need a quick chat with a colleague who understands the issues, or more hands-on support in the face of serious problems. County Welfare Officers are on hand to provide the former, whereas your National Officeholders (usually through the General Secretary) can provide support for more serious matters.
Further details on your Welfare Officers can be found below and General Secretary Rupert Barnes can be contacted on 01905 424292 or 07966 060304
Please do not hesitate to pick up the phone.

- To meet new appointments and introduce them to NAGS and the role of Welfare Officers.
- To be a source of advice and wisdom to new Group Secretaries.

- To be actively involved with anyone who is on a performance recovery plan or any other form of disciplinary procedure.
- To actively help any Agent going through an Agency change.
- To follow up on any information provided at Regional NAGS meetings.
- To support the General Secretary in his work.
