Rhona Kenny, Croydon Drop-In
 
"I am the Counselling Manager and designated Safeguarding Lead for Croydon Drop In (CDI), a local charity that has supported children, young people and their families in the borough of Croydon trhough a range of offers for almost 40 years.
 
As the safeguarding lead I am responsible for ensuring that the agency policies and protocols remain current, comply with the latest legislation and are delivered in the spirit of best practice. I continue to update on safeguarding training through the LA and share news and developments with the agency staff teams.
 
I would like to be involved with the Safeguarding Board as I have many years of experience and learning in this field as well as the practical application and knowledge of safeguarding and, importantly, the well- being of children and young people who seek help and support in the community and at CDI."

Tracey Ford, JAGS Foundation
 
"I will bring my first-hand experience as a bereaved mother to the issues of keeping children safe in the Borough. Through the youth campaigning organisation I set up in 2010, I am very aware of the increasing youth violence issues affecting more and more children in Croydon.
 
I believe I will bring a grassroots perspective and over 10 years' experience of the critical issues which need to be considered and addressed in order to tackle the epidemic of safety for all children in the Borough.
 
I will ensure that the voice of parents, children and the local voluntary sector organisations is  representative of the local communities and  to ensure that the safety of children is a priority."
