Student Rachel Winder joins Community Foster Care's Workington teamA warm welcome to student Rachel Winder who has just joined our team in Workington for a four-month placement.

Rachel, 26, is in her second year of a three-year social work degree at the University of Cumbria. 

She will spend the coming months working alongside Loren Hannah and Viv Gibson at our office in Peart Road, Workington, learning the ropes and discovering the rewards of fostering.

“I submitted my placement profile and was really excited when I found out I was going to be with Community Foster Care.  It’s a great team, and I’m really enjoying it,” said Rachel, who lives with her partner and their 18-month-old daughter in Distington.  

Registered Manager Emma Weaver said: “She’s fitted in brilliantly and is already making a difference.”

Before going to college, Rachel spent six years as a support worker at West House Day Centre in Workington, working with people with disabilities.
