Lynne has 26 years experience of Social Work. I have specialised in Child Protection both in the UK and New Zealand for 23 years. My Child Protection work in New Zealand started when I was recruited to Te Pururuhau (The Child Protection Team at Starship Hospital ). I have also worked as acting site manager across 5 Auckland OT sites and senior advisor both at a regional and national level. My experience also covers mental health where I spent 4 years working with maternal mental health services covering the Waitamata region. My passion is “ children” and ensuring that they have every opportunity to enjoy a safe and nurturing childhood that supports their future to adulthood.
