Get involved

Quartermile, Edinburgh

There are many ways you can get the most from your organisation's SPF membership.

  • You can get involved in our campaigns and influence work by providing us with data and case studies to support our representations.
  • You can add your organisation's voice to our responses to Government and other consultations.
  • You can help us to identify issues that need tackling, and provide evidence on how policies are working (or not working) for your organisation.
  • You can take part in discussions and working groups to determine the approach we should take to Government and other decision makers.
  • You can come to one of our events, where you can network with your industry peers and learn more about how Government policy affects your work.
  • You can promote your services to industry peers by hosting or sponsoring one of our events.

If you'd like to be involved in our policy work, your best first step is to sign up to our newsletter, monthly e-magazine, or committee associate updates. These will keep you informed on our work and opportunities to participate.

If you are already aware of a particular campaign you'd like to be involved in, get in touch with the relevant member of our team.

RECEIVE OUR WEEKLY NEWS UPDATE

We produce a news bulletin every Monday that provides an outline of what we have been doing on our members' behalf during the previous week, gives advance warning of the things that are coming up and lists the Government consultations that impact on our industry that we will be responding to. 

Email: Murray Horn (mhorn@bpf.org.uk) if you’d like to receive the weekly Update.
