About Karen

I am the Team Manager for Children First
As the team manager I support the registered manager in the running of the service. I oversee the recruitment and assessment processes of new applicants to foster. I chair annual household reviews for approved foster carers. I support the placements team in placement finding and matching. I am responsible for the supervision of staff and complete induction of new staff. I support staff in managing complex cases and offer hands-on support where this is needed. I promote partnership working with local authorities and respond to complaints, concerns, safeguarding issues and allegations. I represent the Agency at multi-agency forums. I participate in the out of hours rota, and conduct audits to ensure compliance with required standards.
