Ruth Sinfield’s working career has been in social care, mainly in the statutory sector but with strong links with the voluntary sector.
She qualified as a social worker in the 1970’s and worked her way up the management ladder to a senior level.
Now semiretired she continues to take an interest in vulnerable children and families. Her association with Home-Start goes back many years when she worked in partnership with them. When she retired, she was asked to join the local Home-Start management board. She became Chair just before a Wales merger was muted so was very involved from the beginning in this new organisation.
