About the opportunity
Would you like to volunteer to become a SCAMchampion and take a stand against scams ?
Friends Against Scams is a National Trading Standards Scams Team initiative, which aims to protect and prevent people from becoming victims of scams by empowering communities to Take a Stand Against Scams.
Friends Against Scams has been created to tackle the lack of scams awareness by providing information about scams and those who fall victim to them.
Hampshire Trading Standards Service is looking for approachable and enthusiastic volunteers to train as SCAMchampions. These SCAMchampions will then cascade messages throughout the local community about scams prevention and protection.
What is a SCAMchampion ?
SCAMchampions are Friends Against Scams who want to do more to help their local community. SCAMchampions host awareness sessions to recruit Friends and drive the Friends Against Scams initiative forward. SCAMchampions will attend additional training to give them a fuller understanding of the laws surrounding scams. They will also receive practical guidance on undertaking presentations.

- be over 18 years of age
- be passionate about protecting and preventing victims of scams
- be happy to speak to groups of people about the Friends Against Scams message
- have effective communication and presentation skills
