I’ve received an invitation to speak at the Moira Anderson Foundation ‘Not on our Watch’ Partnership Conference on the 26th October 2015. Sandra Brown is the founder of the Foundation and was awarded an OBE in 2006 for her contribution to child protection. Sandra is also an endorsed trainer in Protective Behaviours and it is through this that our paths met 🙂
Sandra was eight when eleven year old Moira Anderson disappeared from the small town of Coatbridge, near Glasgow, in 1957. Twenty-seven years later, at a family funeral, Sandra’s estranged father confessed to her that he had been involved in the girl’s disappearance. Appalled and fascinated by his curious half confession, Sandra began to delve into the case and in so doing discovered that her father was an acknowledged molester of children and his activities were known not just to everyone in Coatbridge but also to the police
As a result of her experiences, Sandra founded The Moira Anderson Foundation in 2000. She has remained deeply involved and assisted them to grow to where they are today.
Sandra Brown was educated at Coatbridge High School, Hamilton College and the Open University, which awarded her an Honours Degree in 1978 and a Masters in Education in 1996. A primary Deputy Head Teacher, then a Senior Lecturer in Further Education, she is the author of the bestselling book ‘Where there is Evil’.
I am so looking forward to being part of this amazing event and hope as many of you as possible can be there too 🙂
