Chris studied Social Work at Dundee University and graduated in 2010. Just after graduation, Chris worked as a Children’s Residential worker, across the country with Randstad Care. Then, in 2011, Chris worked as a Children and Families Social Worker with Stirling Council. Most of this time was spent working in a Throughcare/ Aftercare Team working with young people leaving care and making the transition into adulthood.

Chris has over ten years’ experience in working children who have experience of care. In that time he has built up experience of what issues young people in care face and the systems and processes within the care and criminal justice system that young people navigate. Chris understands the importance of a Trauma Informed response from services due to the earlier adverse childhood experiences that many young people with care experience have faced. He looks forward to contributing the improvements that The Promise looks to bring to the care system as a whole, which will mean a trauma informed workforce delivering care and support to children and young people, when they need it.
