Lucy Hebberts graduated from the University of Birmingham in 2019 with a degree in Business Management and joined start-up business GINA, working as the Business Lead. GINA's mission is to bring a 'sprinkling of magic in supporting all subjected to sexual violence & abuse in living free, empowered, hopeful futures; whilst challenging beliefs, attitudes and systems that threaten such futures'.
Through University of Birmingham funding, GINA was awarded a total of £1000 towards the start-up costs of our organisation - this funding was vital in enabling GINA to start supporting individuals subjected to sexual violence & abuse.
GINA is RSVP’s sister organisation, a Birmingham-based charity providing free sexual violence & abuse support services. All GINA profits are donated to RSVP to help fund free support services for survivors who need them.
One of the best things about being the Head of GINA is witnessing GINA's journey as it grows to offer more services, products and resources to support individuals subjected to sexual violence & abuse. It also enables me to live into my values and GINA's values everyday to embody a compassionate approach to supporting individuals.
