''I began my journey at Spurgeons as an Early Years Worker, through supervisions support and guidance from my colleagues and my local management team I grew in confidence and was successful in becoming a Family Support Worker which had always been my dream.  With differing training opportunities, coaching, and the opportunities to reflect on my own practice...I have now become a Senior Family Support Worker, which enables me to share my passions and skills with others and pass on the knowledge and skills I have gained through the people I have worked with and alongside.''
