Carol, our Placements Coordinator for all children in the South was presented with an Award at the Lydd Office today to celebrate her . She was thanked with a bunch of flowers and some vouchers which we hope she'll treat herself with! Roy Hipkiss, Director of Care and Business Development of Credo Care presented Carol with the award to the tune of Oh! Carol by Neil Sedaka, and had the following to say thank you for her committed service:
"Carol initially joined our Fostering Panel in 2001. Her previous work experience involved being a qualified nursery nurse and also working with families. She also held a senior role coordinating the work of Learning Support Assistants at a senior school.
Carol then started working with us in 2006 to work in referrals and matching. She now specializes in matching work and has made the role her own, seeing many successful placements through with our many carers throughout the years. We are extremely proud to say that Carol's matching work has been ranked as outstanding by Ofsted and she is mentoring the staff in the midlands to maintain this high standard as well.
She has had some personal challenges over the last few years but I am pleased to see that she has continued to stay with us. Thank you Carol for the last 10 years and we look forward to many more!"
