I became a Trustee with CFC in March 2021, having worked for over 20 years as a social worker within the field of fostering. I live in Gloucestershire with my husband, with my two young grand children and close family members living nearby in Cheltenham. I greatly enjoy spending time with my family and friends who live both locally and across the country.
In February 2021 I retired from my previous role as the agency decision maker in a large national IFA and realised I now had the time to become involved in local community and or voluntary work.
I have followed the progression and development of CFC during the past 10 years that I have lived in Gloucestershire with great admiration. I have huge respect and regard for the tireless commitment foster carers show towards young people and I appreciate the important role charities such as CFC play in supporting positive outcomes for children and young people. The values and vision of the charity are inspirational and the aims appear achievable. I look forward to becoming an active Trustee and working alongside the staff, carers and trustees in the coming years.
