With such a wide background in child care work, I offer work in many areas. Mainly I am focused on working with families where children would be considered at risk or are vulnerable. Many years of front line child protection and then managing fostering has given me many skills to evaluate situations for children. I am very child focused and having spent some years as an independent chair for child protection and an IRO I have a clear view of what is good enough and what is not. I have also devised a very realistic and intensive parenting course/assessment that are a very real and more economical alternative to residential assessments.
