My role within the Devon team is to support our Foster Carers whose children and young people are on TLC programmes. I meet with all of the carers on a weekly basis to help them to reflect on their role as Therapeutic Foster Carers. I really enjoy building relationships with carers and helping them to develop their skills and confidence.
The best thing about working at Blue Sky is hearing and seeing evidence of the huge commitment made by our carers to the children and young people in their care, and the brave steps they help their children take towards being able to feel happy and secure in themselves.
I’ve been working to support children, young people, their families and the professionals who support them for more than twenty years and have worked as a Youth Worker, a Frontline & Independent Social Worker, a Primary Mental Health Worker within CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) and now as a Clinical Practitioner within Blue Sky.
