Next event:


Maureen Johnson - Wednesday 28 February 2018 - 1-2pm

Oculus OC1.09

Followed by networking in the atrium until 2.30pm over tea, coffee and cake.

Maureen Johnson was born in Wolverhampton and still lives in the region with her family. Maureen’s family cared for foster children, who lived with the family for various periods of time. The foster children were from a variety of different cultures and social backgrounds, yet all the children lived together as a family. Having experienced this from a young age Maureen recognised that irrespective of culture and background, the needs for children and young people are the same - to be loved and cared for. As a result, in 1990, at the age of 23, she entered into the Fostering industry, and in 2000 set up the nationally recognised Wolverhampton-based FFT Services.

Maureen has a range of academic qualifications, including a BA in Social Policy & Administration, a MA in Applied Social Studies, a Masters in Education and a Cert in Qualified Social Work. Maureen is a graduate of the University of Warwick.
