Rosie Twomey

Senior Practice Development Coordinator (Mat Leave)

Rosie is the Senior Practice Development Coordinator with What Works for Children’s Social Care and supports our Practice in Need of Evidence programme.

Before joining WWCSC, Rosie worked as a social worker with two London local authorities in initial assessment, specialist adolescent and long-term intervention teams. Rosie also completed a secondment to a Local Safeguarding Children Partnership to encourage children and community engagement with safeguarding partners across three London boroughs. Rosie trained in systemic social work practice and is particularly interested in how organisations and safeguarding partners can use relationship-based practice meaningfully with children, young people, families and local communities.

Before gaining her MSc in Social Work through the Frontline programme, Rosie studied Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester and worked with the NHS, an international children’s charity, and an organisation supporting the arts in the UK.

In her spare time, Rosie loves walking her dog along the river, getting lost in a box set or podcast, and trying (but rarely succeeding) to fit some yoga and swimming into her week.
