I have been employed as a Lecturer in Social Work since November 2017. Prior to that I worked in Salford Children’s Services for fourteen years. My professional background is in child protection and court work, Looked After children, fostering and adoption, gaining a senior practitioner role in 2008. I worked on the Emergency Duty Team providing out-of-hours duty cover across adult, children’s and mental health services. I have undertaken independent safeguarding investigations into allegations against professionals and I was a member of the major incident team for Salford City Council, supporting members of the public in the aftermath of major/critical incidents. Prior to qualifying as a social worker, I worked in mental health, homelessness, older people’s care, drugs and alcohol, supported housing and as a volunteer counsellor for ChildLine North West.
