Faith Weekes


I have worked within the child care and child protection field for over 25 years, as a nursery officer, social worker and Children’s Guardian, the last 10 years as a Children’s Guardian and independent social worker. As an independent social worker I have completed a large number of assessments and reports for court in both private and public law proceedings. I have also completed a large number of parenting/fostering/special guardianship and kinship assessments for local authorities. I regard myself as child focused, fair and balanced in terms of my assessments and views.
