I have known Fee Lee for many years as we served together in the same police force. I have been her student and also worked along side her as a trainer. Fee’s knowledge in sexual offence investigations was outstanding and she went above and beyond her role to improve police response to victims.Fee excelled further in Child Protection and is an expert in Safeguarding.I have recently attended some of Fee’s training sessions - she remains extremely passionate about her work and this shines through in her training delivery. She is friendly and engaging and her training is current, practical and realistic. I have no hesitation in recommending Fee.

I enjoyed working with Fiona at Safe-guarding.co in delivering specialist Level 4 safeguarding training for GPs.  The high quality conferences that she delivered were met with very positive feedback from delegates. Fiona is well organised and helped with the logistics to run the training efficiently and sensitively.
