Michele Pratley

Michele originally trained and qualified as a teaching assistant and worked in both a middle and high school. 

Michele gets great pleasure in seeing a family who may have been at loggerheads at the start of a package of support, make changes and come together as a family- and most of all start having some fun!

Jill Wallis

Jill used to run a  Nurture Group at a school and has lots of experience working with children in various educational setting and in their own homes.

Jill feels very fortunate to be able to say that she has her dream job. The satisfaction of supporting families and seeing them overcome challenges, flourish and enjoy themselves is a privilege and very satisfying.

Alyson Rushworth - Currently on Maternity Leave

Alyson finds working with children and their parents really rewarding. She feels that every family goes through difficult times and it can be hard to see a light at the end of the tunnel, but for a family to let you into their home and life for a short time to help them through this is very satisfying.

Alyson is a mum to a 13 month old girl who gives her lots of joy. She loves spending family days together and socialising with friends.

Natalie Higgs

Natalie enjoys getting to meet a variety of families all experiencing varying difficulties, which means that no 2 days are the same. The role is very challenging but also provides lots of rewards for both me and the families.

Natalie's biggest success was winning an eating competition and beating 4 grown men!

Gemma McKenna

Gemma really enjoys working with families and seeing them achieve the goals that families set for themselves.  
A special moment for Gemma was watching a child she supported have the confidence to appear in the school play.
Outside of work, Gemma enjoys spending time with her two young children.

Louise Young

Louise's background is nursery work, in which she worked her way up to deputy manager before becoming an EIFSW.
Louise enjoys the role because it supports families who need help and is so varied that it makes each day interesting. 
Her biggest achievement is having her baby girl and gaining her degree in Theology.

Asmah Mahmood

Asmah has a strong desire to help others, she works with a non-judgmental attitude empowering individuals and collaboratively with families to make a positive difference they deserve.

Tracy Reinecke

Tracey has a background working in a specialist therapeutic residential school for children aged 5-13. Tracey enjoys the challenges of the Early Intervention Family Support Worker role and the fact that every day is different.
