I’m Kim and my role as the Regional Manager of the NFA Wales involves overseeing the running of the agency and providing support to all of our team in their differing roles. I find my role really rewarding and love the fact that we promote a therapeutic style of parenting for the children in our care (helping to promote really positive outcomes for children and young people).
I’ve only been working for the NFA since 2020 but have a lot of previous experience of working in fostering, with some of my past roles being Registered Manager for another independent Welsh fostering agency and Service Manager for the Fostering, Adoption and Placement Services within a large local authority in Wales. I also have experience of working in the areas of Safeguarding and Youth Offending.
Although I’m relatively new to the NFA Wales, I’ve already been impressed by our fantastic foster carers and our committed team that support them (so if you have an interest in fostering, please get in touch to speak to one of them so that you can find out more).
