Our social work team works in partnership with families to offer advice and support on issues such as education, welfare benefits, housing and transition.

Our highly experienced social work team supports families in many different areas of social care.

They will liaise with external agencies, provide advice and support on securing benefits and other entitlements and work alongside those currently involved with Children’s Social Care. The social work team can visit families at home, attend meetings or meet families at The Donna Louise.

Angela Ward. Social Worker

"I work with every family who needs help, they simply have to ask and I’ll look into their circumstances and investigate what they might be entitled to. I like to make myself visible so that families can approach me with any issues. Something which seems small to us can mean a huge amount to a family and helping them with that pressure is very rewarding. I’m here to support every family who uses The Donna Louise – they just have to ask.”
