Bondholder Safe and Sound has appointed a new chairperson and several new trustees.

The former chief executive of Rushcliffe Borough Council, Allen Graham, has joined as chair of the Board which oversees the strategic direction and operational integrity of the charity.

Allen Graham said: “Safe and Sound provides vital support to children, young people and their families and has the potential to grow its services and influence further both in Derbyshire and across the region.


“I hope that my skills to support the CEO and her team will help achieve these ambitious goals and to help transform the lives of many more young people in our local communities.”

He has been joined on the Board by Laura Richmond who has expertise in criminal and wider exploitation; commercial property agent Mark Richardson, director of Bondholder BB&J Commercial; business analyst Russell Lipscombe; and solicitor Ellis Pugh who is a member of the charities, social enterprise and not-for-profit team at Bondholder Geldards law firm.

Commissioning and partnership expert Sonia Rafferty continues as vice chair of the Board alongside treasurer and chartered accountant Graham Gilbert; chief executive of Bondholder QUAD Adam Buss; and health and social care practitioner Stephen Edgeley.

Safe and Sound chief executive Tracy Harrison said: “We are grateful to all the professionals who have given their time and expertise voluntarily to Safe and Sound over the years and whose tenure has now come to an end.

“The mantle has now been taken up by a fantastic new chair and group of trustees who all bring a wide range of skills to take Safe and Sound to the next exciting chapter in our development.”
