I have been the assessment manager for Brighter Futures since July 2021. Prior to this, I worked as an advanced practitioner in a local authority fostering team, supervising social workers, supporting foster carers and overseeing fostering assessments. I have worked in various fostering teams for the last 11 years and therefore have quite a broad range of experience in all aspects of fostering and supporting others in this role. Fun fact – I have many hobbies including singing/playing music and also sewing and making lots of lovely things. My favourite part of the team is definitely the people I get to work with at Brighter futures who are all so dedicated and committed to the work they do to support vulnerable children.
