Louise graduated with First Class Honours in Social Work
During her studies, Louise developed a service supporting families experiencing child to parent abuse (CPA). “As a mature student with children and dyslexia I was happy to just pass, so getting a first was amazing,” she said. “It has boosted my confidence and shows other students that have specific learning difficulties that anything is possible.”
It was during a placement for her degree at the Sandycroft Centre, that Louise was given the opportunity to develop a service to help people affected by a specific form of domestic abuse. The Eve Project was created to encompass the many different forms of domestic abuse women, children and families experience. Within this, Louise has set up a Child to Parent Violence and Abuse service.
Now Louise has a role as family social worker and CPVA (Child to Parent Violence and Abuse) lead at The Sandycroft Centre. She works there three days a week building up the support service, while studying for a Master’s in Understanding Domestic and Sexual Violence at the University of Worcester.
