I have been fortunate to work in children’s social work since 2014. I have worked in the South West and East of England. I have worked across assessment teams and longer term safeguarding teams in social worker, team manager and service manager roles. I managed an assessment team for two years where I made threshold decisions on a daily basis and chaired strategy meetings.
I am ABE trained and I have recently worked under the Family Safeguarding Model that is being piloted in select authorities in England.
I specialise in parenting assessments, sibling assessments, pre-birth assessments, Section 7 and 37 reports and viability assessments.
