Sparks Fostering Team

Alice Thorn
Panel member (mental health professional)

I am a registered mental health nurse with ten years experience of working within mental health services. I currently work in a primary care setting and my interest in working with Sparks came from experiences working with parents and children navigating the foster system.

I currently work part-time due to having a young family and feel this is the right balance for me, most of my post-qualification career has been in primary care where I see a range of different mental health conditions daily and provide ongoing support to those needing advice, guidance and reassurance with their mental health. In my spare time I support Muslim converts in Greater Manchester, spend time with friends and my family, and run/lift weights. I find this balance helps me manage my own mental health and wellbeing.

I am looking forward to working with Tay and the team, and sharing my knowledge and experiences to help support fostering arrangements.
