What Paul enjoys most about his role as a Social Worker in Schools is working one to one with the children to implement plans that will improve their safety, wellbeing and educational outcomes.  Paul says that early intervention is paramount in supporting children and their families, where the child’s family circumstances are affecting their wellbeing and ability to learn.
