I have worked with children and families since 2002, and specifically fostering. However, I have worked in FAST teams and delivered contact services and Parenting Apart Together programmes. I have worked for private law, carrying out parenting , community based and viability/ risk assessments. I work as an expert witness. I have extensive knowledge of fostering from being a project worker to head of service. I am particularly good at working with agencies or organisations that are struggling with compliance. I have seen services through service reviews and inspections, both good and not so good. Fostering recruitment is a strength of mine.
