Nadine Barrett

I have over 10 years experience working with the families, young people and vulnerable adults.

I have coordinated, managed and delivered projects, including universal & targeted interventions, qualifications, peer mentoring programmes, awareness campaigns and research. Working in 4 London Boroughs and currently in the Borough of Slough, I have applied this experience and skill to recognise gaps in service and highlight the needs of all of our communities. Focussing to provide the appropriate response by running consultations with young people, professionals and community groups.

In 2018 alone I have trained over 300 front line workers, apprentices and managers from statutory and third sector organisations. This has been in addition to my main role to meet the needs of partner agencies and ensure they are equipped to recognise, refer and respond to signs of exploitation.

I have organised and supported the development work & research into;

  • Understanding how gangs/county lines impacts us locally
  • Organising a health check into our Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) responses
  • Berkshire Violence & Exploitation Conference for an audience of 214 people
  • International Girls Day events for the last 2 years, reaching over 100 students
  • International women’s day conference for 220 regional attendee’s
  • A 1 year school & parent engagement project using drama to educate
  • CSE awareness day events
  • Undertaken case audits for the LSCB to take away vital learning
  • Spearheaded international men’s day campaign 2018

These have all enabled vital and up to date messages of the biggest risk and threats to our children and vulnerable adults to be heard and empowered men, women and young people to share their voice in a meaningful way. I hope to continue to build resilience in our community and support other professional’s in the workplace to develop to their potential.
