The boss of specialist child exploitation charity Safe and Sound will find out tomorrow whether she has won a national award for her work.

Tracy Harrison, the charity’s chief executive, is a finalist in the Leadership category of the Women Who Awards 2022, which will be presented on Friday.

The awards recognise and celebrate the role of women in business and society.
Safe and Sound, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, is the county’s only dedicated charity that supports children, young people and families whose lives have been affected by exploitation including sexual exploitation, trafficking, County Lines, modern slavery and radicalisation.

Tracy 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.”
