Justine is Programme Manager in the Pregnancy Outreach Worker Service (POWs). Before working at Gateway Family Services she worked in a mother and baby unit. She is also interested in Equality and Diversity and has a degree in Race and Ethnic Studies.
She along with Michelle Bluck manages the POW team, which consists of 25 outreach staff. The POWs work with women to address their social and emotional needs. Practically, this means, accompanying them to appointments, helping them to access their benefits or applying to housing and with some of our more complex clients that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The POWs also provide parenting and breastfeeding support, encourage clients to stop smoking and many many other things.
