Social Care Testimonials

Hardeep Sandhu - Team Manager

Hardeep Sandhu

I commenced my role in Wolverhampton as a newly qualified social worker however, I had a great deal of pre-qualifying experience that was greatly appreciated when I joined one of the child protection teams.  I can confidently say that Wolverhampton has a true learning culture and they create a safe environment whereby practitioners are supported and confident to work with areas of uncertainty.   I am now a consultant social worker and support the learning of others! I feel privileged to work for Wolverhampton and extremely grateful for the opportunities offered.


Marie Fields - Social Worker (Adoption Support)

Marie Fields

After working in the children's social care sector for over a decade I gave serious consideration to where my professional development could be continued. I was drawn to Wolverhampton as within the West Midlands the authority not only has a reputation amongst the regional workforce for being a progressive authority that invests in its staff but uniquely in the region Wolverhampton has a good Ofsted rating.

I became a social worker to work with children and young people at risk of harm or needing support and if Ofsted and colleagues are correct there no better place in the West Midlands than Wolverhampton to practice my profession effectively. 


Rebecca Workman - Social Worker (Court Team)

Rebecca Workman

Throughout my time within Wolverhampton, I have realised that everyone here genuinely strives to achieve the best outcomes for our families and are supported to do so by managers.

This includes being given manageable workloads that enable us to have the time to undertake good work with families to achieve positive changes.

It is a privilege to work with our children, young people and families and, for those who are either not in social work, or are looking to get back into the profession, I would urge them to come and work with us here in Wolverhampton.
