About us Our Team Our Operational Managers Tracey Welsh Tracey is our Families & Parenting Service Manager and has been with Children North East since 2012. Tell us a bit about yourself When I left school I qualified as nursery nurse and went on to open my own private nursery. I then had a change of heart and decided to qualify as a social worker. Tell us about your role in Children North East Since joining Children North East I've been working in the Families & Parenting section. During my time here I have returned to University on 3 different occasions and am now a qualified practice educator for social work students and have a foundation degree in family therapy. What is your dream holiday destination? Vietnam and Asia to learn more about their culture and history. How do you relax after work? I love spending time with my family and friends and spend a lot of time walking our dog.
