Hi! My name is Deborah, I represent the 70/30 Campaign in my local area of Waltham Forest.
I am committed to making my community the best place it can be for its children and their families.
Local Group: Walthamstow
Ambassador Since: August 2018
Day job: Deborah is a school counsellor and family support coordinator in a secondary school with children in care, post order children, those subject to a child protection or child in need plan.
“I was drawn to 70/30 by the sense that it is an organisation
working proactively to prevent trauma and abuse.
I work in a secondary school with children in care, post order children, those subject to a child protection or child in need plan. I am the school counsellor and family support co-ordinator working with many hard to reach families. All the work I do is vital and essential but too much of it is reactive, we are waiting for accidents to happen – it can be like watching a car crash.
I no longer only want to be involved in picking up the pieces. I want to work hard promoting the idea that so much of what children are suffering is preventable. I joined the 70/30 Ambassador Network at the end of the summer and look forward to really working hard to establish a group in Walthamstow where I both live and work.”
