Supervising Social Worker

I have been a Social worker for almost 30 years, mostly working for the LA as a Probation Officer within both adult and youth offending service and then I worked for a number of years in the children and young people with Disabilities Team and in the Placements team for the LA.

I have been working with the Agency as an SSW since December 2018 and I support carers with the children in their care and offer them a listening ear and advice and guidance when needed.  I help with matching of children to carers and work to build relationships with both children and carers.

Colleagues and I provide support groups for carers, where they can meet and network with other carers. I attend children and carer events to encourage engagement and a sense of fun and enjoyment for both carers and children
