Alice Turton

Family Social worker

Family Fostercare South Yorkshire Fostering Team

My name is Alice and I very recently joined Family Fostercare in July 2022, based at the Doncaster office. From the age of 19 I began working in the Health and Social Care Sector, starting initially as a Care Assistant supporting adults with mental health needs. I then started working with children in 2012 as a Support Worker and worked across the service in Children’s Residential Homes, Family Residential Centres and in Semi-independent Living until I completed my Social Work Degree in 2017.

After qualifying, I worked for 6 months as a Nanny caring for 3 amazing children before I began my Social Work journey. Since then, I have worked in two different Local Authority areas; both based within busy Child Protection Teams and I now have a little girl of my own.

I have a true passion for working with children and families and I am dedicated towards promoting the best possible outcomes. I am pleased to say that the next part of my journey will involve supporting Foster Carers, sharing my knowledge and learning along the way.
