I am committed to helping social care staff enable disadvantaged people to get the outcomes they want.

I bring 37 years of experience of team/partnership working with children's and adult services in local authority residential and fieldwork settings. I am a qualified social worker and worked as a service development and senior manager for 20 years specialising in adult services, with key involvement in quality assurance and performance management as well as the development of multi-agency safeguarding. I have worked as an associate of Practice Solutions since 2007. In that time, my particular focus has included improving the management and leadership of social care services and supporting organisations to develop and improve service delivery and strategic planning.
