Practice Development Advisor
Since qualifying as a social worker at the end of 2006 I have worked across both Children and Family and Justice Social Work in locality teams and in the adult custodial environment. Over the past two years my role involved developing the implementation of the Whole System Approach with Multi-Agency Partners across East Ayrshire.
In my role at CYCJ as a Practice Development Advisor, one of the main areas I am involved in is advancing the Whole System Approach. I view the Whole System Approach as an opportunity to achieve the best outcomes for our children and young people; to meaningfully support them across all levels of youth justice and promote practice development.
