I wanted to really conquer Wales and so North Wales was next on the list and the 2nd highest mountain in the UK Snowdon - this I was dreading, it was really going to push me to my limits

The 26th July was a hot day with temperatures reaching 25 degrees, I was thankful that rain was far away after the climb to the summits of Corn Du and Pen y Fan but by the time I was only half way up I was praying for the clouds to cover the sun - it was too hot

When the alarm went off at 4.30am on Saturday morning I didn't groan I was out of bed like a shot, my LAST mountain of my Summer Challenge in support of Refuge Charity - Scafell Pike in the beautiful Lake District.

It all began earlier this year as I sat on the summit of my very first mountain, Catbells.  I struggled on the ascent and was even close to tears as my body protested against the steps I took but I was determined.

WAM - WORK AREA MAILBOX

FOR PROFESSIONALS

POLICE

If a perpetrator does NOT know the address of their victim then this address is #SAFE

If the perpetrator has knowledge or could have knowledge of the personal details of their victim - date of birth, national insurance number, mother's maiden name then Data Protection cannot protect


The HMRC have advised that WAM is a tool for Police to use to protect vulnerable people

It appears that the Police had no knowledge of WAM - awaiting Freedom Of Information requests to all Police Forces and HMRC, a report will follow once I am in receipt of the information requested - the FOI request can be viewed

VULNERABLE PEOPLE

If your abuser(s) do NOT know where you live then this is your #SAFE address

If your abuser(s) knows you personally then Data Protection can NOT protect you

Security questions are your date of birth, children's date of birth, mother's maiden name, national insurance number - these are ALL answers that an abuser and anyone helping them will know

Disclosure of Child Sexual Abuse - A Victims Thoughts

DISCLOSURE OF CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE
A VICTIMS THOUGHTS...

I have been asked to share the following with you, a victims thoughts, her concerns, fears and message to other victims that she asked me to share after my tweeting yesterday.  I ask that you respect the victims wishes, we have been in contact for some time now and she has been safeguarded.

"Disclosure of child abuse.  There are many things to take into account at this crucial time in your life but the main thing is your personal safety, only you know what you personally need right now.

A question.....

A QUESTION.....

For some time now I have been thinking and I would like to ask you all a question if I may...

If I had come to you, #SAFE Consultancy established, my credentials, skills and experience for all to see, no mention of me being a victim of domestic violence would you have accepted/treated me differently?

If I had told you about my last position, the brand new project & swanky building handed to me by Social Services to manage, the policies, procedures and safeguarding I wrote and put into place, the staff I recruited and managed, the risk assessments I created and put into action, the clients I wrote risk assessments and care packages for would you have been so quick to disregard, disrespect and under estimate me?

#SAFE recommendations for People's Tribunal

PEOPLE'S TRIBUNAL

To be clear - I am not the person to safeguard the People's Tribunal and have no agenda except to ensure that victims are as #SAFE as possible.  I care, I care about the victims who have waited to have their voices heard, I WANT them to receive the full justice that they deserve and so I recommend the following:

1. Before another victim is contacted be it via social media, email, phone or in person a LEADING CSA safeguarding expert is sourced and the correct policies, procedures and safeguarding are put in place.

THE PEOPLE'S TRIBUNAL

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING NEW BUT HAS BEEN PLANNED FOR OVER A YEAR!!!!!!!

After my week long break I had some catching up to do and so yesterday I spent most of the day with my nose buried in research and investigations pertaining to the "People's Tribunal." 

My thoughts, questions and concerns..... 

this is NOT an attempt to discredit BUT I do need to be clear - victims safety is at risk and victims must come 1st.  I have attempted to conduct a conversation with Joanne Welch on twitter but she avoids my questions and has subsequently now blocked me after initially following when I asked her where the funding came from.
