I am a Manager in the Wales and West referral Hub. Following a long career in Printing, I returned to education and qualified as Social Worker in 2006. I have Supported foster carers for a number of years and as the Permanence Officer for children and Young People who are ‘Looked After’. I eventually progressed to Senior Social Worker responsible for placement finding in Fostering and Residential Care for the Local Authority. Due to this experience, I have a deep understanding of placement finding and choosing an Agency and a Foster Carer. I use this experience to help ensure NFA Group Foster carers are matched as quickly as possible.
