Craig, Sessional Residential Child Care Worker
Craig is a Sessional Residential Child Care Worker at one of our Residential homes in the North of England where he is part of a team providing a safe, nurturing and enriching sanctuary for children to reclaim their childhood and reach their full potential.
How long have you worked at a Five Rivers residential care provision?
Since it opened in 2014! I was one of the original staff members, nervously sitting in a room full of strangers wondering what was in store for me. I’m proud of what we have achieved in that time!
What’s the best thing about your job?
I’ve really enjoyed watching the young people grow and progress slowly but surely during the time they live here. I’ve also enjoyed the camaraderie and the learning that the staff and young people have shared together since we began.
What do you do to relax?
I like to strap a wooden plank to my feet and ride it down hills – it’s called ‘snowboarding’. I recently went to Glenshee in Scotland and had a great time in the mountains there!
