Operations Lead Trustee

In her previous role as a senior manager within Somerset's Children's Social Care team, Carolyn saw the tremendous value that vulnerable children derived from having a long-term mentor. She joined the Board in 2018 and is the lead trustee for Operations.

Carolyn Drew

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.
