Olivia Scull

Olivia joined life resolutions in 2017 after gaining a Bachelor honours degree in Social work at Leeds university. Olivia is registered as a social worker by the Health Care Professionals council. Olivia is unusual for her generation in that she has worked consistently in her academic and employment choices to pursue and secure herself the qualified position as a social worker.

Her career and professional development started a volunteer supporting children and young people with disabilities to access leisure opportunities in their community. At this early start Olivia was aware of the importance of supporting the families too, recognising of safe and meaningful value of respite for all.

At this time, she actively worked in her academic studies obtaining Distinction in her Diploma in Health and Social care (Triple award) which stood her in good stead as she progressed to her degree training.

Throughout the course of her degree training Olivia also worked as a social care support worker in a residential and nursing home. This post has supported Olivia’s skill development in the delivery of person centre planning; and working in a non-judgemental and non-biased approach.

During her time at university Olivia also gained experience as a children and young persons an advocate, working for a leading children’s charity; Barnardo’s. In this role Olivia represented the views and voices of children in care, as well as those undergoing child protection enquiries and young people up to 25 with education health and care plan meetings. For Olivia’s final year placement, she worked in the statutory sector within an integrated health and care team, working alongside adults (including young adults) and their families.

Olivia now holds a mixed caseload for Life Resolutions, working with both adults and children. Olivia has continued her professional development since qualifying and had added court skills training to her skills set. She has also attended conferences on ‘The role of social care in implementing the SEND reforms’ with the council for Disabled children and attended a CPD seminar with Judge McConnell, SEND Tribunal judge on ‘’SEND Tribunal: update on procedures and giving evidence’’.
