Episode 9: ’Working In The Care System’ - A Professional’s Perspective, with Beth Francis.

SOFEA SESSIONS

05-07-2023 • 54 mins

Today's episode is with Beth Francis, the Quality Improvement and Operations Manager at Response. Beth's professional background is in the care system, predominantly working in a children's home. In this episode Beth talks us though some of the challenges professionals and young people face and the importance of forming consistent, honest and solid relationships with 'children we care for' (also known as 'looked after children'). Beth also talks about how working with 'children we care for' influenced her behaviours and beliefs, stating that "behaviour is communication, these young people are not 'naughty' or 'bad', they are trying to get a deep need met and this is often the only way they know how".

A huge thank you to Beth for coming on to share her experiences and give valuable insight into a professional's perspective of the care system.
