Adele – Senior Social Worker

Hello, I’m Adele and I joined UK Fostering in December 2021. I qualified as a social worker in 2005 and initially worked within local authority safeguarding teams. I began working in fostering in 2008 and since this time I have worked within local authority teams and independent fostering agencies, assessing and supervising foster carers, completing special guardianship reports and regulation 24 reports regarding connected carers. Much of my social work career has been working within the independent sector

The last two years I have spent working within local authority children’s teams, within the looked after children’s team and leaving care team as I wanted to further develop my skills and knowledge. Though I enjoyed this, I always knew that I would return to fostering once the right opportunity presented itself.
