I have extensive experience in child protection work, including assessing cases from the initial point of contact and completing a Child and Family Assessment. I have initiated child protection procedures, Care Proceedings and have a wealth of experience in the children and families arena. I have worked as a Locum Social Worker and have the ability to manage complex case loads. I have undertaken specialist research into child protection issues in Scotland and worked as an Independent Trainer on social issues, creating and delivering my own training sessions. My experience ranges from statutory to charity work and incorporates work with variety of ethnicities, cultures and age groups.
