I started my career in social care by supervising contact between looked after children and their families and providing intensive support to vulnerable young people and families. From September 2017 to April 2020, I worked in frontline Child Protection, carrying a case load of Child in Need, Child Protection and Looked after Children, alongside duty work and court work. In April 2019, I became an Independent Form F Assessor, based in South Yorkshire and surrounding areas, where I assess prospective foster carers' abilities to care for and meet the needs of looked after children to a high standard. This is now my primary employment.
