Organised by the pro-women committee, this promises to be a remarkable celebration. After a phenomenal turnout of almost 400 last year, we're gearing up for a bigger & more inclusive event.

We would like to emphasize that ALL, regardless of gender identity, social background, sexual orientation, or any other distinction, are not just welcome but celebrated. Save the date for this empowering & diverse get together.

Look out for exciting speaker announcements and charity partnerships over the coming weeks - you will not be disappointed!

About the Speakers:

Maggie Oliver Founder - The Maggie Oliver Foundation

MAGGIE OLIVER is perhaps best known as the Detective turned whistleblower who resigned from Greater Manchester Police in 2012 to expose the now infamous Rochdale Grooming Scandal.

Fighting her feelings of disbelief, fear, outrage, and anger she has fought tirelessly for 12 years to expose the truth about how the vulnerable victims of serial sexual abuse were being failed by our criminal justice system.

This led to her working tirelessly for 4 years as “The Programme Consultant” to bring multi-award-winning BBC 1 drama ‘Three Girls’ to our screens and more recently known for her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother 2018 -Year of the Woman, as well as Loose Women, This Morning, Lorraine, Dky News, BBC, ITV and many more media outlets including in France, Switzerland, Australia, USA etc.

Her first book ‘SURVIVORS’ was published on 11th July 2019, (available on Amazon) which tells the story of her life as well as the full horrifying truth of how generations of children have been failed from the unique perspective of an ex-police detective.

The Maggie Oliver Foundation is the next chapter of her journey. Totally exhausted with trying to help all those who contacted her, she realised there were only two choices left …. abandon those victims and survivors of sexual abuse who so desperately needed help, or build an army of like minded warriors alongside her to share the load and fight for much needed change in a broken criminal justice system. Maggie chose the second option and in 2019 her charity The Maggie Oliver Foundation was born.

Since then, The Maggie Oliver Foundation has grown to a team of almost 40 staff and volunteers who have provided much-needed emotional support and legal advocacy to over 4000 adult survivors of sexual abuse and rape. Survivors from all communities who have nowhere else to go, but who need a helping hand to help them move forward in their lives.

The legal advocacy work TMOF undertakes is led by Maggie and another ex police officer plus a survivor of abuse and is totally groundbreaking and unique. At the national forefront of pushing for much needed changes in a broken criminal justice system where victims are horrendously failed every single day, the cases they are involved in are regularly covered in many national news programmes and on the many podcasts, documentaries and interviews which Maggie undertakes every week.
