I joined St. John’s as a Care Worker in 1998. Since then I have undertaken various roles within the Care Department such as Team Leader, Senior Care Worker, and Care Manager. For the last 2 years I have been the Safeguarding Manager and DSL, overseeing any Safeguarding concerns in a proactive way across the School, College and Residential Houses. I have gained my NVQ level 3 in Caring for Children & Young People, NVQ 4 in Management and Level 5 in health and Social Care.
I train staff in Safeguarding, Boundaries, Prevent Duty, FGM and the Code of Conduct and thoroughly enjoy inducting new staff who are joining our organisation.
We pride ourselves in the maintaining high standards of safeguarding for all of those who are part of St John’s, Safeguarding is, of course, everyone’s responsibility!
