I am a registered social worker and my career of 21 years has been in social work and social work management within children's services. Before that I was a foster carer.

I have been aware of and worked closely with Promise Mentoring since it was developed as a local authority service.  I have seen, first hand, the commitment of the mentors and the staff. I am also aware of the tremendous impact that mentoring has on children and young peoples’ lives.  I very much enjoy my role as Operations Lead trustee, supporting our team of professions and our wonderful volunteers in their vital work.
