I have worked to safeguard children and promote their welfare, which includes protecting them from maltreatment or things that are bad for their health or development; and making sure they grow up in circumstances that allow safe and effective care. I work in partnership with service users to support social integration, empowering them to lead meaningful and purposeful lives: promoting health outcomes, resilience, peer support, employment opportunities and self-determination.
