I am responsible for supervising and supporting carers to provide a high quality of care to the children and young people living with them. I enjoy seeing children and young people beginning to thrive when they move in to their new foster home and watching them grow in confidence and in self esteem. It is fascinating to watch the children and young people begin to develop new friendships and embrace new challenges, developing new skills. Working with Foster Carers is very rewarding and many are very dedicated and passionate about raising the aspirations of the children both educationally as well as personal goal setting.
I love being part of a team who are child-focused, and who are passionate to make positive changes in children’s lives.
Previously, I have worked in the statutory and voluntary sector and dedicated my career to working with children and their families. I particularly enjoyed a post with the Children’s Disabilities team and the children and their families were very inspiring. I love to travel and have been fortunate to travel throughout Asia, India and loved working and living in Australia for a couple of years.
