Emma is a skilled Social Worker, with over 27 years experience of working within the public and voluntary sector in the field of disability.
During her early career she worked in residential short break provisions being a vital member of a team caring for disabled children and young people. This service enabled their families to have a much needed break safe in the knowledge that their children were in a ‘home from home’ setting.
She has two children of her own, both of whom are developing a social conscience and can often be seen supporting Emma as volunteers raising income to provide services for disabled children.
Her experience of Safeguarding, gleaned through extensive practice, brings an insightful perspective to Entrust Care Partnership, keeping vulnerable children and adults safe and at the forefront of everything we do.
Used to change, she managed the transitional phase of fusing Social Care Disability teams to help form the Integrated Disability Service between local authority and health services. Working together with Lynne, Emma co led the development of a range of new services in Warwickshire through funding from the Aiming High programme.
During this time she oversaw the Council’s Key Working Service, developed the in-house Short Break Service and contract managed short break provider services.
Emma leads through example and strives to always make a difference, demonstrating her expertise in a quietly confident manner.
In a voluntary capacity Emma was a Governor at Newburgh Primary School in Warwick for over 6 years, becoming the elected Chair of Governors during this time.
Emma is now a self employed social worker and Director of Entrust Care Partnership where she is invaluable in providing operational leadership to staff teams within the organisation with a particular focus on personalisation.
