Jodie Whittaker

Jodie Whittaker is best known for portraying the thirteenth incarnation of the Doctor in the BBC’s Doctor Who series, and has previously starred in several television roles including Broadchurch. This year, she is filming a 6-part Australian TV series in Sydney called One Night for Paramount and is currently filming the 3-part second series of the BBC drama Time.

Jodie says: ‘Most of us know someone who has experienced an abusive relationship and many of us have felt at a loss as to how to support them, or to understand why it has happened. Tender makes our response a simple one; listen, believe, support. Their work with adults with safeguarding responsibilities enables them to further develop knowledge, support and safeguard young people. By supporting Tender, I know we are working towards helping every child have a safe space, to get the support they may need and teaching them what healthy, happy relationships look like.’
