Dear parents and caregivers,
My name is Jenny Sheppard and I am the new Social Worker in Schools (SWiS) based at Henderson South Primary. I will be available on Mondays and Tuesdays to provide you and/or your children with support before problems at home or school become more serious and difficult to overcome.
I work for Family Works Northern and the service is free and confidential. I can meet with you to discuss how to support your family, and provide needs-based programmes that your child may be able to participate in at school. As well as this, I can meet with children at school who self-refer to me.
My role is to assist in improving self esteem and confidence in children and improve life skills and relationships by encouraging personal strengths within families.
I can be contacted by:
