Family Support Officer
I have worked with children and families in our community for over 20 years. I was born and raised in Sunderland and here I plan to stay.
I started my journey working with children at just 16 years old when I was a volunteer at a youth group for children with SEN. And that’s where the passion began. I just loved it!!
This quickly moved to a post working within a residential setting. For 10 years the children and I grew together, and my memories of these days always make me smile.
I then moved on to working within an education setting at Sunningdale School and the Sunderland Portage service. Here my experience and knowledge grew over the next 10 years.
In my free time I like to read and have even been known to put on my dancing shoes and tap till my heart’s content.
My role as Family Support Officer at Grace House will see me continue my work with families, supporting them navigate the often-daunting social care system.
