The CEO of Derbyshire’s specialist child exploitation charity Safe and Sound, has been named as a finalist in a national awards scheme recognising and celebrating the role of women in business and society.
Tracy Harrison is a finalist in the leadership category of the Women Who Awards 2022 which is in its sixth year. The winners will be announced at an event at Coombe Abbey Hotel in Warwickshire on 1 July 2022.
Safe and Sound celebrates its 20th anniversary this year as the county’s only dedicated charity which supports children, young people and families whose lives have been affected by exploitation including sexual exploitation, trafficking, County Lines, modern slavery and radicalisation.
Tracy Harrison said: “I am obviously delighted to be shortlisted for these awards but a leader is only as good as the team around them.
“I therefore look forward to representing all the amazing people who work so hard to support and protect children, young people and families in our local communities.
“Furthermore, a key priority for us as a charity is to raise awareness of the issue so platforms such as this are important to engage and educate more people that any child is in danger of exploitation both online and in person – regardless of their sex, age, family background or culture – but that help and support is available should they have concerns.”
