Hello, my name is Charlotte and I have recently turned 24. I am from Leeds, West Yorkshire and have grown up in a small town called Horsforth for most of my life. In my childhood I attended a local dance school, 'Joyce O'Donnell' and competed at a championship Level. At 18 I left Leeds and moved to York to study Social Work at the 'University of York'. Towards the end of my Degree, I won a local election and was elected as a Horsforth Town Councillor in May 2020. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work and in March 2020 I began my first role as a qualified social worker in a Child Protection Area team. My role is very diverse, but I particularly enjoy working restoratively with children and families. I hope to really build on this and seek out new opportunities within my roles over the coming years.
