I am a 2nd-year student social worker on placement at Babbasa. I will be working alongside Matt Winn (Engagement Lead) to help young people explore their talents, grow their self-belief and confidence, and support them in fulfilling their employment and enterprise ambitions.

I have previous experience in the Health and Social Sector (elective surgery, district nursing, frailty team and theatre etc.) working mainly with adults. Despite this, I have always had the desire to work with young people in the community that face oppression because of their characteristics. My aim is to support young people and make changes within the society that we all live in.

Babbasa’s core values are a true representation of my own values and beliefs, I believe everyone deserves to be treated equally
irrespective of their background, ethnicity, nationality, gender and sexuality.

Moving forward, I hope once I have qualified as a social worker, I can come back and work for this unique organisation. Babbasa has a great
team within a relaxed environment that focuses on putting the young person at the centre of their service and that shows heart!
