Children and Youth Workers
Sally joined the team in September 2018. Sally has 20 years experience supporting children with emotional and behavioural needs. She began her career working one-to-one with children with special needs before training to run Nurture Groups teaching emotional and social skills to vulnerable children who don’t access classroom learning very well. She then went on to become a qualified Emotional Literacy Support Assistant (ELSA) working for three schools.
Sally will work with children aged 4-11 providing one-to-one mentoring support in a school setting across our primary-aged partner schools.
