Rachael Holmes

I am a supervising social worker and I have been a qualified social worker since 2005.  I have a vast experience as a social worker ranging from child protection, children in care, 16 plus, parenting assessment centre and more recently fostering. I have also been a housing services manager for the YMCA which spanned over a 10 year period.

I love working with children, young people, families and foster carers at is really rewarding work. I love been part of the team around the child that helps them to them to reach their potential in life and enables them to see their value.

My parents were in fact foster carers for over 20 years and this is what inspired me to become a social worker and more recently join the fostering service at St Christopher’s.
