About Us

The Female Fraud Forum (FFF) is an association aimed at solicitors, barristers and accountants who work in financial regulation and the criminal and civil fraud sector.

Our purpose is to promote and encourage the advancement of women of all levels of expertise, through shared ideas, knowledge and experiences. The FFF will run both legal and personal development focused educational events and innovative networking and social events.

Education

With the legal climate in Fraud and white collar crime changing at a rapid pace, the FFF seek to ensure their members are kept updated about changes and recent developments in these areas of law. We offer a range of CPD including topical seminars, lectures and updates over the course of the year to all members. 

networking

networking

Busy work and personal schedules result in many individuals having no time to network to enhance future professional or employment prospects. The FFF organises events throughout the calendar year to ensure that all its members have meaningful and relevant opportunities and exchange information with each other, as well as develop professional contacts with solicitors, barristers and members of the Judiciary. The feedback for networking events to date has been extremely positive. 

Social

All work and no play makes most lawyers very dull souls indeed. FFF members can participate in social events over the course of the year. Enabling a further route to cultivating productive social and professional relationships and networks.

Each year the committee selects a charity to support.

The Female Fraud Forum is delighted to announce that our Charities of the Year 2016 are:

Harrogate and District Society for the Blind

HDSB is an amazing charity providing opportunities to socialise, develop, or re-awaken craft skills and IT training. In addition to activities in the Centre, the Society undertakes home visits and runs a telephone befriending service to help tackle social isolation.  They have regular contact with over 300 visually impaired people, as well as being a point of contact for 400 more. 

The Society is entirely funded by voluntary donations and their work is made possible by the contribution of many volunteers.

Our Educational Officer Victoria Gregory’s mum Ann-Marie used the services of HDSB when she was diagnosed with Nystagmus three years ago.  Very little is known about Nystagmus, a condition which affects the eyes.  As a result of this condition, Ann-Marie, a practicing barrister, struggled to work and found it difficult to walk, drive or read unaided.   During what was a distressing and debilitating time Ann-Marie made tremendous progress as a result of the absolute lifeline offered by HDSB who sent volunteers to help with household chores, provided specialist equipment and called every week with support to help reduce Ann-Marie’s isolation.  

We know that many of its users would be lost without the support that HDSB provides and we are very honoured to be able to support their cause and raise awareness of the issues affecting sufferers.

Royal National Institute of Blind People

The RNIB help people who are losing their sight, are blind or partially sighted and offer practical and emotional support to help face the future with confidence.

They understand the impact of sight loss and provide emotional support and advice to help sufferers live life again.

The RNIB provide practical ways to live independently, whether you need help with technology, ways to continue reading or advice on staying in work.

They are an invaluable first point of contact for the many people affected with a wide range of sight ailments and we are very honoured to also be able to support their cause.
