Bridget Penhale, Management Committee Member

Bridget joined ACT’s management committee in 2008 and is currently on the teaching faculty at the University of East Anglia’s School of Nursing and Midwifery. Bridget’s area of interest within her research is older people and safeguarding.

Bridget is committed to pushing forward everyone’s expectations around people with disabilities and safeguarding. She has been interested in our work around Safeguarding Adults at Risk since the charity’s beginnings as NAPSAC.

“I met Ann Craft when ACT was NAPSAC - she was inspirational. Whilst ACT’s work has always been crucial to ensure safeguarding is given the prominence it deserves.”

Bridget is a devotee of “who-dunnits” and is also a Board member of the International Network for Prevention of Elder Abuse (INPEA).
