Supervising Social Worker
Family Fostercare South Yorkshire Fostering TeamHi I’m Teresa and I have recently joined family Fostercare as a part time Supervising Social Worker within the Beverley office. I have worked with children throughout my working career. I started out life in London where I worked a Nursery Nurse within day nursery settings before going on to qualify as a Hospital Play Specialist working within a busy London hospital. I then made the move from London to Yorkshire where I have never looked back. I went on to work as a nanny caring for 5 children before moving to specialising with teenage mums. I then made the move into Local Authority where I worked as a Family Support Worker in a busy Child Protection Team before then going on to undertake my degree in Social Work. I made the move across to fostering in 2017 as I wanted to work more closely with families and children using my knowledge and skills to help support placements and achieve the best outcome for children. When I am not working, I am busy with family life and can often be found climbing up mountains within the lake district, camping and generally enjoying life outdoors. Most importantly I will be having FUN!!
