Farewell Sarah!

Sarah Goff

Sarah Goff, Ann Craft Trust Safeguarding Young People Manager, is leaving her role to work with the University of Portsmouth.

Sarah has over twenty years’ experience in the fields of child protection and social care. She is an expert in the field of safeguarding disabled children and her interests include the impact of domestic abuse and child sexual exploitation.

Sarah combined her role at the Ann Craft Trust with work as a lecturer at the University of Nottingham on their BA and MA Social Care programmes. Sarah also delivered safeguarding disabled children training to organisations across the UK to give a voice to children and young people.

While working for The Ann Craft Trust, Sarah took part in numerous research projects. This includes the recent We Matter Too project, which explored how young people with sensory, learning or physical needs and disabilities experience support services when they face domestic abuse.

Good Luck, Sarah!

As sad as we are at the Ann Craft Trust to be losing the knowledge, experience and passion of our Safeguarding Disabled Children and Young People Manager, we’re very happy for Sarah.

Sarah is leaving the Ann Craft Trust after more than 10 years to take up a position at the University of Portsmouth supporting a research project there. She will also be working as an independent trainer, so she can continue to support organisations who work with disabled children and young people.

Throughout her time with The Ann Craft Trust, Sarah has been a passionate advocate for disabled children and young people. She’s helped support many organisations recognise and act upon the different dynamics when supporting a disabled child or young person facing abuse or harm.

Everyone at Ann Craft Trust wishes Sarah all the very best in her future endeavours. Good Luck Sarah!
