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 Charity of the Year is:

Centrepoint

Centrepoint is the UK's leading charity for homeless young people. With its partners, it supports 9,200 young people (aged 16-25) each year. It helps young people to find safe accommodation, provides health support (in relation to both mental and physical health) and delivers life skills training. It also assists its beneficiaries to find employment.

Young homeless people can stay with Centrepoint for up to two years. The charity then provides a further six months of support to assist each young person as they start to live independently.
