Jo is the Unaccompanied Asylum Seeking Children Coordinator for the region and is responsible for facilitating the transfers of young people into and around the East of England through Home Office programmes such as the National Transfer Scheme and Vulnerable Children’s Resettlement Scheme.

Jo qualified as a social worker in 2012 after spending 6 years working as a family support practitioner for Suffolk County Council during which time she gained experience in safeguarding, court work, sexual exploitation and eventually becoming the social work lead for Child Trafficking for the service.

When Jo is not working she enjoys spending time with her family exploring the countryside in her vintage campervan (when it is running).
