Perinatal Support Worker
Sally originally trained in childcare and worked in nurseries, schools and play schemes for a number of years . After achieving her BA (hons) in Early Childhood Studies she went on to work in family support within a charity led Family Centre in Milton Keynes contributing to family support packages and parenting assessments alongside other professionals.
Sally then went on to develop her family support work further in The Wellingborough Local Sure Start programme and Children’s Centre as a Family Support Worker and then a Service Coordinator for a number of years. This involved offering a range of 1:1 support to families , organising and running groups and delivering parenting courses to families with children under 5 years old
Sally gained her Early Years Professional Status whilst here and also did some training to offer family support in schools as a Parent Support Advisor.
Sally is looking forward to taking on the role of Perinatal Support worker and using her skills and experience in the perinatal support service and working with the Flourishing Babies team .
