Vicki is an Advanced Practitioner, who has worked at Knowsley Council for ten years.
“I love the fact that it’s a small authority so I’ve always known people, including senior managers and councillors and I’ve been able to share my views. I feel that my views are listened to and considered and have seen changes as a result of being listened to.
Since the improvement journey began I have been issued with new IT equipment that has enabled me to do my work much more efficiently and there is a focus on making Knowsley a good place for Social Workers to do their job, which means we are supported to do our best for the children and families that we work with. Knowsley has also offered me opportunities to learn and develop new skills in areas of work that I enjoy.
I like the variety that I have in my job; from working with families, other professionals, and supporting newly qualified social workers. I enjoy the challenge of making a real difference for the children and ensuring that they are safe and supported to reach their full potential.”
