Sue was a phenomenal social worker, with an in-depth knowledge of, and interest in, the law as well as the policy and practice framework.
She was also an outstanding trainer and wrote several of Family Rights Group’s training programmes. Pam Ledward, Family Rights Group’s current Principal Social Work Adviser described how she was swept away by the joint advanced law and practice training she attended when she joined Family Rights Group which was delivered by Sue and Bridget. They were a stunning double act.
Sue worked part-time but somehow managed to head the Advice and Advocacy service and hold the role of Principal Social Work Adviser. She transformed the Advice and Advocacy Service, growing the team and the numbers of calls answered, securing funding and developing the charity’s advocacy service.
Sue loved her two boys and was immensely proud of them. Tragically Sue was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and ultimately died from this awful illness.
Sue died in 2020, aged 58 years old.
