Brook welcomes safeguarding expert to Board of Trustees

Young people’s sexual health and wellbeing charity Brook is delighted to announce that Phillip Noyes has been appointed as a Trustee.

Phillip is currently acting as the NSPCC’s director of services and is about to take up the role of NSPCC chief advisor on child protection. He has over 30 years of experience of working to safeguard the health and wellbeing of young people and is also a member of the Home Office National Group on sexual violence with a particular focus on culture change and online abuse. Phillip can trace his involvement with Brook back to the 1990s, when he was instrumental in gaining the NSPCC's support for Brook's service in Belfast, which opened in 1993. 

Welcoming the appointment, Brook's Chair Eve Martin said:

“Philip's expertise in safeguarding and child protection is second to none. With his wealth of expertise he will be a real asset to the trustee board.”

Phillip Noyes said:

“I am proud to be asked to be one of your trustees. I am a great fan of Brook. Confidentiality and respect for children and young people are litmus tests not only about how in the UK we improve the sexual health and wellbeing of our young people but also for all that the safeguarding process ought to be about. It's great to be with you."
