I have thirty-five years of social work experience, most of which has been in fostering. My specialist areas include completing assessments of prospective carers and working within a framework of attachment. I have been involved in the recruitment of carers, in assessment and in training and support. I have also taken part in direct work with children. I have a good knowledge of the legal aspects of fostering.
I am looking for freelance work in assessments, initial visits, IRO and Panel work, training and other related roles.
