Leading UK women’s charity, Advance, today launched its Ambassador Network with the appointment of Jenni Trent Hughes. Advance is the UK’s leading frontline services charity working with women & children experiencing domestic abuse and those involved in the criminal justice system.

Jenni Trent Hughes is a TV and radio broadcaster, writer, social commentator, specialising in relationships and family issues.

Jenni Trent Hughes said: “I am really pleased to support the invaluable work that Advance undertakes supporting women across London who are existing in a variety of challenging circumstances. Having travelled around the globe working with women in a range of untenable situations I have seen firsthand just how crucial the empowerment of women and the development of healthy family relationships are to a successful society.”

Christine Losecaat MBE, Chair of Advance said: “I am delighted to welcome Jenni to Advance as our inaugural Ambassador. As a broadcaster and relationship expert, Jenni will support us as a powerful advocate for woman’s rights and the benefits society will reap from supporting women to overcome trauma and domestic abuse.”

Advance saves and changes the lives of women and children across London at a time when domestic abuse affects one in four women in England and Wales and where six out of ten women in custody and supervised in the community report having experienced domestic violence.
An Advance Ambassador promotes Advance’s vision of a world in which women and children lead safe, equal, violence-free lives so that they can flourish and actively contribute to society.
