When did you start working at Five Rivers? I joined as a fostering support worker in February 2017
What do you most like about your role? I enjoy speaking to people and helping them to understand what the role will involve and how fostering will work for them and their families. I like dispelling myths that there are out there around becoming a foster carer.
Fun fact? I once swam with Whale sharks in the Philippines 😊
When did you start working at Five Rivers? I joined in 2019 as a Carer Enquiry Co-ordinator.
What do you most like about your role? I enjoy helping people to understand what becoming a foster carer is going to entail, having a good chat with them about the process they will need to go through to become a foster carer so that they have a better understanding of fostering. I enjoy knowing that those I speak with could potentially help many children in the future with a loving and secure home for them to thrive in.
Fun fact? We are lucky enough to have 4 hedgehogs in our garden each year, as well as hoglets too and as a family we support the hedgehogs to survive by giving them food and water each day and safe spaces in the garden to nestle in.
