Community Foster Care has welcomed Vivian Gibson to its Cumbria office.
The Placement Support Worker joins our team in Peart Road, Workington after 14 years as a family worker with Cumbria County Council.
Five of those years were spent with the looked-after children team. She was also a foster carer for two years.
“I’m enjoying being part of the CFC team and getting to know the carers and the children personally. This agency has always been well-regarded by carers for the level of support it provides – and that’s so important,” said Vivian, 46, who has lived in Workington for more than 20 years and has three grown-up children.
Registered Manager for CFC, Emma Weaver, welcomed Vivian to the team. “Her experience with the local authority and as a foster carer is invaluable and we know she’ll be a great asset,” she said.
Community Foster Care, a charity and independent agency, provides foster carers for children all over Cumbria.
Foster carers come from all walks of life and can be male or female, single, married or divorced. They must be over 25 and in generally good health.
