What qualifications did you take to start working with TFF?
With a background in administration work, I began working as an office manager for TFF in 2005. I found that I particularly enjoyed getting to know the foster carers and young people. I completed an NVQ4 in business and administration 6 years after starting.
How long have you worked with The Fostering Foundation?
In 2013 I changed my role to Support Worker as I really enjoy working with young people. I was completely inspired by the first year of the social work degree, following completion of which my title changed to social work assistant. I feel privileged to have built relationships with several young people in my time with TFF.
What do I like best about my job?
Supporting our carers and young people is something I think TFF do very well which is why I have been working here so long.
I have 4 children and 9 grandchildren that keep me very busy outside of work and as if I did not have enough to do I also have a lively springer spaniel called Ned.
