Sue is a qualified social worker and has managed safeguarding and looked after children services at a strategic level in Local Authorities for over 16 years resulting in an extensive knowledge of the systems that surround children in care and care leavers.
As a senior manager she built trusting relationships with children and young people and it was their views on leaving care that led her, along with other colleagues and young people, to develop the first House Project in Stoke-on-Trent and the establishment of further projects across the UK. Working with young people and House Project staff in Local Authorities Sue developed the psychologically informed practice framework and constructively challenges practice, processes and cultures to ensure that young people are at the centre of everything that happens. In addition to assuring the quality of the approach Sue leads on stakeholder engagement with a commitment to collaborative working so as to add value to young people’s experience of leaving care.
