Specialist areas:

  • Children's Services work in local authority settings
  • Change management work, especially for looked after children
  • Development of collaborative initiatives in Children's Services
  • Work with Children's Services Managers to bring about change and service development


I am particularly committed to improving services for the most vulnerable children in our society. I believe that managers and staff can make a real difference to children's lives if they have the right attitudes, have a clear sense of purpose and are properly trained.

I have worked for 40 years in local authority Children’s Services and for the last few years have been project manager for collaborative fostering projects and the National Adoption Service.
