Mike Starr


I sit on the board as an active voice for the complexity of lived experience of the social care system, I have lived experience from age 0 to 15.

I am a qualified social worker of 10 years. I started working in this sector as a youth mentor, then as a youth worker, followed by moving into social work. I have spent time working in the areas of child protection, supporting foster carers and now as a practice lead for children in care and care leavers.

I am so proud and privileged to experience others’ journeys. I am particularly interested in focusing on recovery, resilience and relationship when it comes to social work.
