Family Support Practitioner (2021)
Denise joined the FASS team in August 2021 as an Outreach Family Support Practitioner, to work with clients in their own communities or homes, providing them with the necessary support around a loved one’s drug or alcohol misuse.
Denise brings 18 years of experience to our team, working in employability services for 12 of those years to help enhance the skills of young people in boosting their chances of employment, and 6 years in a residential homeless unit, offering guidance to young citizens on how to live safely in their own homes.
“Throughout nearly two decades of providing support to those in need, I feel like I have accumulated a wealth of knowledge on the best methods to offer vital guidance. I have facilitated CV workshops, one-to-one support, and also training sessions within construction to deliver manual handling and safety awareness to groups, amongst many other things.”
“Seeing the lives of clients dramatically improve as a result of the guidance I have offered, gives me great satisfaction and fulfilment in life. I have a strong desire in helping clients which is what FASS is founded on – so when I witness the positive changes over the course of someone’s support period, it means that I can go home each night with a smile on my face knowing that I have achieved something great.”
