Stephanie Reardon is responsible for the operational management and delivery of programmes at LimeCulture CIC.
Through her background in the civil service and the various posts she held in central government, Stephanie has specialist knowledge around sexual violence policy development and service delivery and implementation. Stephanie is currently a member of the Home Office’s Independent Advisory Group on Ending Gang and Youth Violence and was selected as a Peer Reviewer to ensure that the response to gang related sexual violence is incorporated into local area gang and
youth violence strategies. She currently sits on the Home Office’s National Young Women and Gangs Working Group and a range of other government Steering Groups in this area.
Until March 2011, Stephanie was the Delivery Manager for the Department of Health’s National Support Team for Response to Sexual Violence where she supported all 39 Police Force Areas and their partner Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) across England as part of the NST work stream to improve the provision of Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC) services. This gives Stephanie a unique perspective to her work and makes her ideally qualified to support the commissioning of sexual assault services.
Stephanie has held a number of challenging posts in the DH; as National Delivery Manager for the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) Programme (2007-2009), where she co-ordinated the delivery of new psychological therapies services across the NHS as part of £173million national programme. From 2005-2007, Stephanie was the National Programme Manager for the DH Violence and Abuse Prevention Programme ‐ a complex policy and research programme focusing on the effects of domestic and sexual violence and abuse.
Stephanie was also seconded to the Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) Child Exploitation and Online Protection (CEOP) Centre during 2007/8. Stephanie has a legal background and is also a qualified project manager and holds the Prince 2 Practitioner-level qualification.
