Margaret Hemper – Family Outreach Worker

I’ve been working at COPES since September 2016.  Prior to this, I worked for Brighton & Hove City Council Children’s Services as a Contact Supervisor and Family Support Worker.  This brought me into contact with families in crisis due to drug or alcohol issues or domestic violence, and I loved feeling a part of the team that helped the family and children to flourish.

I have also worked in several children’s homes, where I have worked with young people recovering from trauma due to abuse or viewing/experiencing domestic violence.  It is rewarding to help young people to develop the skills to move forward in life.

I love my work with COPES as I find the holistic approach to working with the child, the family and the school tends to have amazing results and benefits for all concerned.
