Profile

Miss Jordan Pugh is a confident, hard-working and dynamic social worker. She has 7 years’ experience of working in child and family services within Swansea Local Authority. She has worked in frontline child protection for 5 years before moving to the family fostering team two years ago. Miss Pugh has a sound knowledge base of legislation, policy, theory and practice and have evidenced over time how my skills are transferable, she also prides herself in being a great team player, keen to learn and try new ways of working, being down to earth and transparent. She has always worked under the signs of safety methodology and as such her work is based on solutions focused and strengths based practice. She works very well under pressure and is competent in assessing and analysing risk. Miss Pugh’s preferred type of work is within the court arena carrying out parenting assessments and giving evidence.

During her 5 year practice in frontline child and family services, she carried out a wealth of parenting assessments both within the public law outline and within the court arena. These assessments included specific issues such as drug and alcohol abuse, domestic violence, mental health issues, neglect, poor home conditions, sexual abuse, physical abuse and emotional abuse. Miss Pugh covers all aspects of the child’s needs, the type of parenting that they require, their styles of attachment and their future outcomes. She is confident in her risk analysis skills within these areas and have prepared thorough, robust reports for the local authority and for the court.

During her 2 years within the family and friends fostering team, she also carried out many viability assessments, connected persons assessments and SGO assessments.
