Rachel James

Evidence Ambassador

Rachel is currently a Practice Manager in a London local authority. She has worked  across statutory children’s services, initially in child protection and then in a looked after children’s service. Prior to qualifying as a social worker, Rachel helped to develop and deliver new family support services for families in a range of settings. Rachel is an advocate of systemic and trauma-informed practice and through this role would like to support social workers to access relevant research and evidence more easily in order to strengthen and support their work with children and families.
