It is Volunteers’ Week in the United Kingdom and it was recently National Volunteering Week in The Republic of Ireland.  Both these events are a chance to say thank you for the fantastic contribution millions of volunteers make. During these Volunteers’ Weeks, hundreds of events and celebrations take place, saying thank you to volunteers and recognising their invaluable and diverse contributions.

These events are a reminder for us to say thank you to all our amazing Psychologists Protection Society Trust volunteers!

Did you know that our Board of Trustees is made up of 9 volunteers who are resident in Scotland, England, Republic of Ireland, Wales and Northern Ireland? They are all members of PPS and therapists themselves and give up their time to help our members who are experiencing difficulties, while also shaping the future of the PPS Trust.  Our Trustees help our members from the UK, Republic of Ireland and other countries in Europe.

You guys are what making a difference looks like! Thank you!

Announcement: Death of Former PPS Chairman Dr Douglas McFadzean

It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of former Psychologists Protection Society Trust Chairman Dr Douglas McFadzean. He passed away at home in Stirling, Scotland on Thursday 28th June 2018.

Douglas was one of NHS Scotland’s most experienced counsellors in primary care and was formerly the Executive Director of the professional body COSCA – “Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland”. Dr McFadzean was a member of The Psychologists Protection Society for several decades before joining the Board in 2010 to help provide assistance to fellow professionals who find themselves in difficulties. He served as Chairman for just over a year.

PPS Services Director Ewan Murray said “In 2010 my father, PPS founder Sandy Murray decided to turn PPS into a not-for-profit Trust. Dr McFadzean was his first choice as a Trustee, as he knew he would bring wisdom, strength and humour to the role. Sandy was very pleased when Douglas became Chairman, overseeing the organisation’s transition into a not-for-profit Trust. We all came to appreciate Dr McFadzean’s valuable input during his tenure and he remained in contact after his retirement to provide sage advice when needed. I will remember him fondly”.

Dr McFadzean is survived by his wife Christina and two children.
