Welcome Rachel

Welcome Rachel

Carol Hill warmly welcomed Rachel Wilkinson on Monday to Catholic Care as the Charity’s newly appointed Head of Children & Family Care. She started her career as an RMN and continued to train as a specialist practitioner who has extensive experience in the areas of trauma, parenting, adverse childhood experiences and attachment, working clinically utilising a range of therapeutic approaches with families, systems, and children in or on the edge of care including young people involved in all forms of exploitation. Her roles have included working for the National Health Service, children’s services for several years and more recently in senior leadership in schools and specialist education with local authorities focussing on developing sustainable leadership and improving outcomes for the whole school community by embedding a culture of inclusivity and responsive practice.
Rachel has four children and five grandchildren and when she does find time to herself she enjoys running, cycling and walking in the Tees Valley where she lives.
