I have over ten years experience working as a social worker with my current position being a support worker for a clinical commissioning group. The positions duties include helping families recovering from alcohol and drug abuse, doing alcohol and drug testing to clients, supporting the team in delivering recovery interventions, handling general administrative duties among many others. Before I took up this position in 2016, I was in self-employment as a childcare practitioner from 2010 to 2016. The tasks of the job included overseeing, organizing and maintaining a child-friendly environment for all the children under my care. I also planned, observed and kept records for all children, providing some of the files to their parents and guardians, or even using them as a reference source for my management purposes. The documents provide feedback to parents about their kid's progress as well as recommendations to ensure the efficient development of their children. Before that, I had also been as a nursery nurse and engaged myself in groups providing social care to older adults in the community.

While handling those duties, I came across several disabled children.
