Lorimer - At the heart of fostering

Adrienne Hinds

Supervising Social Worker / DipSW

Adrienne completed her university degree in 1987 and immediately took up a social work post as an unqualified Social Worker in Kent. She became a qualified Social Worker in 1990 and moved to West Sussex where she stayed until 1998 when she relocated to Manchester. During this period, Adrienne worked primarily with children 0-18 years and principally within the child protection and family court proceedings arena.

Adrienne then joined the Under 11’s South Team  for Trafford MBC as a Team Manager and remained there until 2002.

Following a career break, Adrienne started conducting Form F assessments for Lorimer Foster Services in 2008 and then went on to join the team as a Supervising Social Worker in June 2010. Adrienne has continued to undertake the support and assessment of applicants wishing to become approved foster carers and this year, she has joined her colleagues in delivering the Skills To Foster course.
