I have over 30 years extensive experience working within Statutory and Voluntary Agencies. I was Assistant Director for 11 years commissioning, strategically developing and managing services, including child protection, looked after children, fostering and adoption, children's homes, secure care, sexual exploitation and historical abuse cases. I have developed policies and standards for children's services across agencies and the Safeguarding Board. I undertake serious case reviews, complaints, grievance, risk assessments, audits of services for quality improvement, safety, and training. I am available to work outside the UK. I have worked in Croatia, Bulgaria and Middle East.
