A warm welcome to Ellie Cheney, who joins Community Foster Care as a Supervising Social Worker.
Ellie joins the organisation with seven years of experience in the care sector under her belt gained in local authorities and in a residential setting.
Brought up in Plymouth, she spent eight years working in casinos in her early career.
“It was good fun at the time but I wanted a job with a bit more purpose,” she said.
She trained as a youth support worker and sexual health worker, then went to Plymouth University as a mature student in 2009 to study for a degree in social work.
Before joining CFC, she worked for Swindon Borough Council for two years as a social worker in the looked-after children team.
Chief Executive of Community Foster Care Hugh Pelham welcomed Ellie to the team in Staunton. “She shares our values as a totally child-centred organisation, and her past experience makes her a great asset,” he said.
CFC is an independent agency and charity providing professional foster care for looked-after children in Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and Lancashire.
