Date: Monday, 05th Feb 2024 | Category: General

PACE have rebranded their name to the Ivison Trust.

Ivison Trust is a national charity working to keep children safe from exploitation by supporting their parents, disrupting the offenders and working in partnership with police and family services. They also train professionals to support affected children and their parents using a trauma-informed, family-centric approach.

Ivison Trust seeks to:

  • Enable parents and carers to safeguard and stop their children being exploited.
  • Provide evidence and specialist advice in order to demonstrate to partners that parents and carers have an essential safeguarding role.
  • Work with parents and partners to disrupt and bring exploiters to justice.
  • Influence national and local policy and practice to reflect the active safeguarding role of parents and the impact on families of child exploitation.
  • Sustain long term change by training partners in the active role of parents and carers safeguarding their children

Why rebrand

Lindsay Dalton, Chief Executive said:

“Our pioneering founder, Irene Ivison fought for the rights of exploited children following the tragic murder of her daughter Fiona. Honouring the memory of Irene and Fiona with the Ivison Trust name and our new identity brings into focus our guiding purpose to keep children safe from exploitation and fight to improve the systems that exist to protect them.

Symbolising both Fiona and Irene in our logo celebrates the strength and love between a parent and her child because that will always be at the heart of our work. They stand strong together in our identity, because we know exploiters will do everything they can to break that bond and Ivison Trust will do everything we can to protect and rebuild it.”
