Commenting on her appointment, Philippa said:
“I’m delighted to take the helm of an organisation that is integral to the wellbeing of the millions of survivors of childhood abuse across the UK. Since joining in 2017, I’ve been overwhelmed by the drive and integrity of the NAPAC team, a team that not only supports survivors through recovery but is also at the vanguard of positive changes in legislation around and treatment of childhood abuse. I’m looking forward to all we can achieve ahead of NAPAC’s 25thanniversary in 2023!”
Gabrielle Shaw, CEO of NAPAC added:
“Philippa’s training as a psychologist and her considerable experience driving positive change across national and global corporations make her a truly unique appointment for NAPAC. I’m very pleased to have someone who understands both the challenges that survivors face and the support they may require, as well as the strategic awareness to help us expand in a sustainable way. Philippa has been a joy to work with over the past few years and I look forward to all we’ll achieve together over the next three.”
