Residential Social Care Worker
Barbara Allen

I am a Residential Social Care Worker.


I have worked at Crocus Fields since 1996.


I am a fully qualified as a nursery nurse, and I have a NVQ 3 in Caring fro Children and Young People.


I like my job because each day is a different experience. I work with a great bunch of people, and I adore the young people. It’s very rewarding when you see YP reaching their potential.


I like Crocus Fields because it’s warm and friendly, more like a family.

About me

I am good at organising, thinking on my feet, planning ahead, adapting to any situation, listening, staying calm, and being a good role model.I am very approachable, I am inclusive, and I come up with good ideas .
