Jo Derrick (UK)

I have 15 years of experience working within a fostering agency in Scotland. I started in the placements service where I managed the team that took referrals for children/young people that the Local Authority required a foster placement for. Since then I have progressed within the agency in leadership roles and am the current Managing Director and Registered Manager with regulatory responsibility for the service.

In 2011 I became a registered foster carer with my local authority. During this time I have worked with a number of families providing respite for Looked After children to support their placement with foster carers. I have also provided ‘edge of care’ support where the children have returned to the care of the parent/s or where they have been at risk of being accommodated if early interventions were not implemented.  I am passionate about the work that I do in both areas of my life.
