NELFT is pleased to announce the appointment of the new Lead Professional for Looked After Children, Victoria Winfield-Brown.

This is a brand-new role for the Trust, with the aim to provide strategic, professional, and clinical leadership across the organisation for Looked After Children.

“It feels wonderful to be back working in NELFT in this amazing new post. I am really excited to be in such a privileged role where I can be a voice for Looked After Children across the organisation. I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with colleagues to engage young people in the work that we do and hearing their experiences.”
