Margaret Bhatt

Margaret worked as a qualified Social Worker for Berkshire (in Slough) for 13 years working in different child care teams including assessing foster parents and adoptive parents together with guardian and child protection work. She gave up work to foster a little boy – for 2 years before being able to adopt him. She then adopted a girl placed at just 6 days old so she has been on both sides of the fostering placement process. She returned to work and spent 20 years as an Education Social Worker often working alongside the main Social Work teams so she understands some of the pressures on both foster carers and social workers. Margaret works very closely with the young residents.
