Enid Hendry

Enid Hendry

Independent child protection consultant


Enid is currently Associate Editor (CPD) for Child Abuse Review, a BASPCAN Trustee and Co-chair of BASPCAN’s Education, Learning and Policy Committee. Child protection has been the focus of her work for over 30 years. Her professional background is in social work and included practice in Camden and Nottinghamshire. She held a number of senior national positions in the NSPCC including Director of Training and Consultancy and Head of Strategy Development for Looked After Children. She has contributed to national and international research and policy, given evidence to child abuse inquiries and Select Committees and lead the development of a number of child protection training resources. In 2017 she helped to set up the NSPCC/BASPCAN Child Protection Trainer of the Year Award.

For 40 years BASPCAN has worked at helping challenge the myths and misunderstandings so often associated with the highly emotive area of work that is child protection. Through the sharing of knowledge gleaned from research, findings of enquiries and from examples of best practice, this small inter-professional network grew and today BASPCAN is unique in its position as the only multi-disciplinary professional membership association (with charitable status) of its kind.
