Julie – Regional Director South East

Julie introduces herself as someone who has accumulated a wealth of experience working with children. She began her journey as an advocate for children affected by parental divorce and separation, later transitioning into roles as a nursery manager and a foster carer for the local authority. With two children of her own and additional foster children under her care, Julie has developed specialized knowledge in the realm of looked-after children and foster care, gaining experience across statutory, voluntary, and independent environments, all of which have fueled her passion for child welfare.

Proficient in various roles, Julie is a competent Social Worker, Practice Educator, Reviewing Officer, and Assessor (PAMs trained). Throughout her career, she has held management positions, providing effective supervision, training, support, and guidance to colleagues and professionals alike. Julie’s commitment to continuous improvement is evident through her extensive training in therapeutic approaches to support, as well as her certification as a Mental Health First Aider for both adults and children. Julie’s proactive nature led her to join UK Fostering in 2019, where she now serves as the Regional Head of Services for London and the South East since 2021.
