Deputy Regional Director
The Fostering Foundation South West
I’m excited to say that I’m starting 2016 in my new role as the South West Deputy Regional Director. I joined the Fostering Foundation nearly 3 years ago and developed as a Senior Supervising Social Worker and qualified as a Practice Educator. Throughout this time I also continued to develop my dedication to supporting and working alongside some outstanding foster carers to promoting improved outcomes for children and young people. As a Deputy Regional Director I am looking forward to carrying out new responsibilities such as becoming the referral co-ordinator, staff supervision, whilst still undertaking student placements and foster carers supervisions. To achieve the recent policy guidance towards professional development in a managerial role – I am also currently undertaking the NVQ Level 5 Management and Leadership Course.
I do however recognise that I have so much more to learn although I am looking forward to the new challenges and experiences that this will bring.
