We are delighted to welcome Lauren Seager-Smith as our new CEO. Lauren was previously Chief Executive at Kidscape, the charity that provides help with bullying. She joined The For Baby’s Sake Trust on 9 May. Lauren has a great range of skills and experience and a trauma-informed, whole-family ethos.
Lauren Seager-Smith said:
“I am delighted to be taking up the role of CEO of The For Baby’s Sake Trust. I’ve worked with children and families for over twenty years, and there is nothing more important than the relationships we have with others – whether at home, school, or in the wider community.
As a parent myself, I understand how our history and our stories impact how we care and relate to others, and we all need support on the journey. It will be a privilege to lead a team providing innovative, trauma-informed support to families. The services that The For Baby’s Sake Trust provides have the potential not only to transform the lives of the babies and families directly supported, but generations to follow. “
Dame Lin Homer, Chair of Trustees, said
“We are looking forward to welcoming Lauren Seager-Smith as CEO of The For Baby’s Sake Trust. Lauren is a highly respected charity leader, bringing skills and experience for the next phase of our journey, including income generation and organisational growth, along with passionate commitment and transferrable experience of improving lives for children and families.
Dame Lin added,
“The appointment of Lauren Seager-Smith as CEO also enables Amanda McIntyre to move into a vital new role as Deputy CEO, focused on the next phase of building and sharing our evidence about what works, to support the expansion of For Baby’s Sake and influence wider practice, policy and systems.”
