Meet the team
Hello, my name is Dave and I've been a Supervising Social Worker with Parallel Parents since 2016.
My role with Parallel Parents allows me to work with some amazing children, carers and birth children. It's a pleasure to be part of the journey, supporting from the assessment process, to approval and then through to fostering where together, we really can make a difference.
I'm Mandy, Team Leader for the Cheshire area. I have been working as a supervising social worker since 2018 where I originally built a caseload up in the Manchester area before making the decision to move back to Cheshire in 2020.
Prior to my role with Parallel Parents, I was a manager of a children's home, a role I have done since 2004 in various agencies.
I have enjoyed completing assessments with families to prepare them to become foster carers, and am always over the moon to see their faces when they have been approved at panel and feel honoured with being part of their journey.
I feel proud of our carers and of their hard work and commitment to the children in their care, and seeing the children happy and settled is one of the best parts of the job which reinforces why we do what we do, and that there are some amazing people out there who love being able to offer children a space in their home and their heart.
Start a rewarding career in which you can make a real difference. We will fully train and prepare you to be a great foster parent and help give a less fortunate child a brighter future.
We give you all the support information you need to get started as a foster carer. If you have a question that hasn't been answered by our website, feel free to start a quick web chat with us, email us, or give us a call, and we'd be delighted to answer your query!
