Co-Creator & Founder of Operation Encompass
Chair of Trustees
I am a career naval officer and currently oversees Naval Cadet, University and Youth engagement, Naval Service recruitment, initial entry training, professional development and leadership.
I am a school Governor and Chair of Trustees for Aggies, a faith based naval charity, I have been inspired by the selfless commitment of Elisabeth and David Carney-Haworth and am proud to be supporting Operation Encompass as a Trustee.
I am a mother of two daughters. I have supported my husband Bob and the Royal Navy over 34 years actively involved in naval engagement throughout the South West and London.
I am delighted to support Operation Encompass as a Trustee believing it to be a brilliantly simple idea with a huge potential to protect thousands of children and young people in the UK and beyond.
I am the Crime Reporter with the Plymouth Herald and I have written about crime in all its forms for nearly 20 years. In late 2010 I wrote a blog regarding my own experiences growing up in a home where domestic violence took place. My piece was picked up by then police Sgt David Carney-Haworth and used as part of the initial training of police officers and key adults for Operation Encompass.
I have continued to write articles about Operation Encompass, its successes and its challenges and have joined Elisabeth and David at a number of seminars and launches to support and promote the scheme. In 2016 I agreed to become a trustee of Operation Encompass.
I am a deputy headteacher and I have witnessed first hand the negative impact that domestic abuse has on children. I was amazed at the simplicity of Operation Encompass when it was launched in school. Just knowing that a child has been involved in domestic incident the night before makes a huge difference to how I can prepare for that child and the whole class so that they can all have the best day possible is simply amazing.
Being a Trustee has given me a wider knowledge of Operation Encompass and allows me to be actively involved in the support of David and Elisabeth and the wider aims of Operation Encompass.
I am a married parent of two young children. I am a Governor at Torpoint Nursery and Infant school and I am the elected Chair of the Curriculum and Standards Committee. My children are my inspiration for becoming a Governor in the local community.
I first heard about Operation Encompass when it was launched in school and I was overwhelmed at its impact and support that it offered children suffering from domestic abuse.
I felt that my experience of working in an educational background, as an Administration Manager at a Further Education College, for over fifteen years, would be of benefit as a Trustee. I am the deputy town clerk for Torpoint Town Council.
I am qualified with an Honours Degree in Business Administration, gained whilst working full time, which gives me a wide depth of knowledge and information and which is very useful as a Trustee. Whilst working in education I was a trained Safeguarding officer
I am very proud to be a Trustee for Operation Encompass.
I feel privileged to be part of something so unique and inspiring. When I first heard of Operation Encompass I was overwhelmed by it’s impact.
As a primary class teacher I immediately understood the value of Operation Encompass and the difference it can make to children who experience domestic abuse. I believe that Operation Encompass is vital to support children and that the positive impact it can have on children’s lives is invaluable.
