Safeguarding & Compliance Lead

Hi, I Am Abby and I have just become the Safeguarding and Compliance Lead for Pro-Action.

I was born in Hemel Hospital and have lived in Hertfordshire my whole life and even attended Hertfordshire University. My Degree is in Education and I take a holistic approach to children and childcare. I have lots of experience in the voluntary sector, particularly through Girl Guiding; running my own Rainbow and Brownie Unit. I have experience of being a mentor and a family worker as well as currently managing a large Out of School Club provider and its safe to say I love it. I have been at Fusion since I was 4 and have not left! Through Fusion, I saw the enormous benefits of the Ambition Accreditation and have successfully completed the Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. 

I have a wealth of experience of working with children, parents, school staff and other professionals regarding a range of matters and one of those is Safeguarding. Personally, the word ‘Safeguarding’ terrifies a lot of people so I want to build the profile and support adults working with children and young people about what they can do to Safeguard people in their care and themselves. I want to make sure that Safeguarding is at the top of our agenda and everyone in Hertfordshire knows what to do and how to approach it.

I am passionate about equipping children and young people with the confidence and life skills they need in later life and feel that growing up in Hertfordshire, I can help support the younger generation to fulfil their goals.

In my spare time, I enjoy watching Rugby and seeing friends. I live in St Albans with my partner and my cockapoo Luna and along with going for long walks I also love travelling and exploring new places.
