Katie Sell

Area Manager - Swanwick & Basingstoke

Hi all, my name is Katie and I joined Blue Sky in 2016 as a Supervising Social Worker in the TLC team. I became the senior practitioner for that team a few months later and then the deputy area manager in 2017. I am now the Area Manager for the Swanwick and Basingstoke Hubs and I work with the teams in Swanwick and Basingstoke to ensure we are providing the best possible service for our Foster Carers and young people.

 

For me, the child’s welfare is paramount and we should all be supporting every child to reach for the sky! I really enjoy working with young people and supporting them to make positive choices for their future outcomes, and believe it is vital that we support our Foster Carers in the unique challenge that is fostering. I love to see the small changes young people can make in our carer’s care and that makes every day worthwhile.

 

Our Swanwick team cover a wide area to provide localised, individual support.

We’re just a phone call away for 24/7 fostering assistance, so you can get on with changing lives.
