Meet the team

We are a small but dedicated team. We will be with you every step of the way of your journey to become a foster carer and beyond. We are here 24/7 to support you.

Claire Bryden

I’m Deputy Manager of the team and I’ve worked in a variety of social work settings since 2006, working with children and families and a specialist health team. I’ve held many roles in fostering since 2013.

In my spare time I love fell walking or something equally as challenging.

Dan O'Brien

I’m a supervising social worker. I have over 10 years’ experience as a children’s social worker.

After work you’ll find me playing footy, riding my bike or out for a run – all necessary to keep up with my young daughter!

Lesley Tyers

I’m a supervising social worker and worked with children in various roles for over 20 years before joining the team over seven years ago.

I unwind at the end of the day with a lovely walk with my two dogs – or a nice pamper if time allows.

Leigh Clarke

I’m a support worker with the team. As a BACP qualified counsellor with more than 20 years’ experience, I support our foster carers as needed.

I love fitness training, making sure I manage to fit in gym visits five days a week.
