“Having a Caritas worker means I can concentrate more of my time and energy on the school learning and education aspects of what I do…There is someone else to work with who often knows the families and children, and, even if they do not, they can assist and have greater familiarity with the processes and knowledge of how to complete safeguarding or other assessments.”
