We are delighted to welcome a new volunteer to KFT – please meet Bhavna. Bhavna is our volunteer girls worker, supporting girls that are affected by county lines, exploitation or gangs.
Bhavna has a level 3 Health and Social care and safeguarding training, an enhanced DBS check and will be attending university to do a degree in Midwifery next year.
“From my own experience, I have a clear understanding what teenage girls go through in society and it is not easy.
I engage, support and deliver one to one support when a case comes through. I support them in building their self esteem and confidence and for them to reach their full potential.
I work alongside the volunteer safeguarding officer and director of the charity.’

We also wanted to introduce Gladys, who has been working with Keeping Families Together for a while now as our safeguarding lead for Keeping Families Together. This means that she covers all training requirements and obtains references for all our volunteers.
Gladys is a qualified childcare practitioner and currently works within a work based day nursery, which is positioned within a hospital. Within the Keeping Families Together organisation she also helps, supports, engages and delivers training to meet the needs of our families and young people.
