Meet The Team

We are the Permanence and Transitions Team, I am Fiona Mackenzie the Service Manager, the Manager of the Permanence Team (looked after children under age of 18) and the Team Leader is Clare Ferris. Transitions Manager (Aftercare - young people 18-25) is Denis Owen.  We have 14 Social Worker and 9 Personal Advisors; we are a busy team, which is how we like it.  We attended this year’s Trafford Employee Recognition Award and made it through to the final for Team of the Year. Although we did not win, we all had a great night celebrating our achievements. We are currently looking at getting more of our young people to join our Junior Care Council (7-11), our Children in Care Council (11-18) and our Aftercare Forum (18+).

Please contact Mark Bailey if you want to find out more about the Children in Care Council and Aftercare Forum on

We are also working hard in putting together the Trafford Leaving Care Offer, which will tell all our children and care and care leavers what they can expect from the Council and other organisations in Trafford.
