“I have worked for Care 4 Children for over a year as the Executive Support Manager. My role is extremely varied and I work across the business with the Senior Operational team to deliver on the company objectives. The work we do as a collective, genuinely improves the lives of children and it is wonderful to see young people work their way through our Wellbeing for Life Programme and have a positive transition after they leave Care 4 Children.”

I get to visit various residential homes and see first-hand the changes being made to the lives of young people at varying stages of their therapeutic programme. The work is challenging but extremely rewarding and whichever of the homes I go to, I’m always made to feel part of the team by being fully supported and appreciated. I work alongside some extremely knowledgeable and passionate professionals who have, and will continue to help me grow professionally with their continuous support and encouragement.”
