I enjoy working alongside potential foster carers and specialise in conducting, Connected Persons Assessments, Viability Assessments and Special Guardianship Assessments.

I understand the importance supporting family members to explore the long-term implications of being foster carers and have the skills to support them to consider the consequences of their future relationships with the child’s parents and the potential long-term risks parents may pose to the child in their care.
