Penny Fosten

Penny has led the NSPA for over 2 years, in which time she has overseen the development and launch of their Resources Hub, grown organisational and individual membership by over 100% and worked with Public Health England to refresh their Suicide Prevention Planning Guidance for Local Authorities. Before joining the NSPA she had ten years’ experience of working to improve well-being, including establishing a ‘reading for well-being’ programme in London – helping to reduce loneliness, build confidence and connection, and enhance people’s understanding of themselves and others. Previously, Penny spent five years volunteering within suicide prevention.
