Hey everyone :) ! My name's Laura and I am the new family support worker here at Venus. It is my second week here and I want to thank the team for being so welcoming and helpful, and to Deb for passing over such useful information!
I offer support to all families at Venus over a period of 10 sessions, with the aim of promoting a more independent lifestyle with little intervention from other services. I aim to support women and their families, building confidence within them and helping them reach their potential for them and their children. I work in a very positive way in order to ensure the families I work with receive the best support available to enable them to live happily and independently. I can help with finances, benefits, appointments, emotional support and anything else women and families may need.
I previously worked at Springwell Park Children's centre so the know the surrounding area well, and hope to make a difference here at Venus!
We will be arranging trips soon before the schools go back so look out for any updates on dates and places of days out, and I hope to meet you all soon!
