Elaine Marr: Social work student profile

My name is Elaine, I am currently a student with the Open University working my way towards a BA in Social Work. My final placement is with the Kith ‘n’ Kin service,  where I will be based until mid July.  My background is in working with children with disabilities, I have been doing this job for around 15 years.  I have also had experience working with adults with disabilities in various settings.

Something interesting about me is that I love trainers – I have numerous pairs of them, books about collections of trainers and even artwork of trainers at home. I also love music, especially going to gigs, even better when I’m wearing trainers and going to gigs!
