New Practice Manager Appointed

By Anglican Family Care | Posted: Sunday December 1, 2019

October saw the end of an era with the departure of our long-standing Practice Manager, Kathy.

Kathy has been a valued key member of staff for over 25 years and we wish her well on the next steps of her journey.  Our team leader from South Otago, Jane has been appointed as Practice Manager and we welcome her to the role.

Jane is a very experienced social worker, starting out with what was then the Department of Child, Youth and Family in 1996 as a Care and Protection & Youth Justice Social Worker before joining the AFC team in 2010 as a Supervisor/Social Worker Child & Support Service in South Otago. Jane developed and led a new rural team across both the South and Central Otago regions until 2017, when the expansion of Family Start allowed the agency to appoint a Central Otago Team Leader. She is hugely respected in the South Otago community and has been instrumental in promoting our agency’s reputation for excellence in the area. 

We are certain you will all join us in congratulating Jane on this exciting opportunity. It is a pivotal role within the agency, and we are very fortunate to have someone of Jane’s calibre to guide the practice of Anglican Family Care into the future.
