How long have you worked with Fostering Foundation?
I started as a Family Support Worker with the Bristol team in March 2019. Prior to this I was here for 6 months doing my final year social work placement with the University of Bristol. I plan to stay with the Fostering Foundation as a Family Support Worker part time whilst I complete my social work qualification.
What I like best about my job
I love getting out and about with young people and doing fun activities. Time with them is completely their choice whether going to the arcade after school or visiting Bristol Airport to plane spot. It is an opportunity for young people to share their wishes and feelings in a supportive and therapeutic space about their foster carers, school, friends or any other worries.
My hobby is running where I love competing in half marathons, 10ks and attending park run every Saturday morning. It is a great way to boost my emotional wellbeing and makes me feel less guilty about eating biscuits and cake in the office.
