Sue Woodcock has been a Trustee of Family Rights Group for seven years. She got involved with the charity some time before, when as Director of Child Care for Barnardos, London and the South East, she was involved in the early days of family group conferences and setting up Childrens Rights Projects. Having graduated with a Social Science degree, all of her professional life was spent in social work. After spending three years as an unqualified Child Care Officer, she undertook the PSW course at Bristol University. From there Sue worked with Family Service Unit in Liverpool, took the Advanced Social Work course at the Tavistock Clinic and then went to Hertfordshire Social Services Department.
