I am the Referral Co-Ordinator at Children First.
As the Referral Co-Ordinator I manage referrals from Local Authorities including, London, Kent, Cambridge, Essex, Southend, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. My aim is to match children and young people to foster carers within strict safeguarding guidelines to achieve best outcomes and practice. I liaise with Local Authorities, Foster Carers, Supervising Social Workers and all professionals working around the children and young people referred to the Agency. I work towards a smooth transition into placement where physical, emotional and educational needs of children and young people are met by our inspiring foster carers. We are a very close team who work together to ensure children in placement engage in interests and hobbies and have fun. I am passionate about my role as Referral Co-Ordinator and Children First are a fantastic and talented team.
