Lucy Faithfull Foundation staff come from various backgrounds and disciplines and have a range of skills and abilities. Our UK wide practitioner team is made up of those with professional backgrounds in working with child sexual abuse in statutory agencies and include psychologists, psychotherapists, former probation officers, social workers and police officers. In addition, the Stop it Now! Helpline is staffed by a team of sessional first line operators from backgrounds which include teaching, working with children with disabilities and working on other helplines (Samaritins, ChildLine). All these staff are supported by a dedicated and hardworking team of administrative staff.
We have one Chief Executive and four executive directors who are responsible for influencing, reviewing and implementing the strategic direction and policy of the organisation.
This team is also responsible for the individual supervision of staff and for the development of their skills and working practices. In addition to supervision, staff receive support related to their differing personal needs and those arising out of the nature of the tasks and advice provided by the charity.
The Foundation recognises its primary assets are its committed and hardworking staff and volunteers.
