Our frontline practitioners

SHS Practitioners are the beating heart of our organisation. They provide direct support to the children, young people and families we exist for and make a huge difference to their lives. Each member of this frontline team brings a wealth of knowledge, experience and expertise with them.

“What we look for in staff is tenacity […] Our practitioners’ backgrounds include social work, teaching and mental health. They all wanted to do more in these professions, but the limitations of their roles meant they couldn’t.”

– Jaine Stannard, SHS Chief Executive in Children & Young People Now magazine
