As an ISW she is commissioned by the court to undertake assessments in particularly complex cases, usually involving children in care proceedings or in disputed private law matters.  She has taken part in Serious Case Reviews as both a chair and overview report writer.  Her consultancy work has been for a range of local authorities on projects such as evaluating the effectiveness of Child Sexual Exploitation services and social work supervision arrangements.  For seven years she was an associate of Triangle, an organisation based in Brighton that offers services to disabled children and their families especially when there are concerns about the maltreatment of the child.  She continues to maintain an interest in this area of practice.
