My name is Glesni and I am the director of Adoption Finder Intermediary Service. After spending nearly, a decade of working with children, young people and families in statutory and voluntary settings, I made the decision that I wanted to make a difference by supporting adults impacted by adoption to search and to be reunited with relatives. My interest of adoption and intermediary work came after working within a regional local authority adoption agency. Adoption Finder Intermediary Service is registered with Care Inspectorate Wales as an Adoption Support Agency. Our service consists of a researcher who is meticulous and has experience of undertaking genealogy training and work.
I am a qualified and registered social worker and I have worked with children and families within a local authority setting for more than five years. My previous experience also involves working for charities such as Women’s Aid. I have managerial experience from working as a senior social work practitioner within a local authority. I have also undertaken a vast of training courses relating to working with children and families including communication and counselling skills, signs of safety and leadership and management training courses.
I live in Pembrokeshire in Wales, although I cover the whole of the United Kingdom and internationally. I regularly travel to different areas of the United Kingdom for work purposes. I am a fluent Welsh speaker and I believe that it is important to be able to support individuals through their preferred language. I am conscious of the emotional impact for individuals to be reunited with their birth families therefore I will aim to ensure that you are provided with appropriate support throughout the process. I believe in listening to individuals’ voices therefore as an organisation I will aim to listen to the voice of everyone involved in the process of being reunited. I also believe in providing individuals with a reasonably priced service. I am registered as an independent social worker therefore I can also undertake independent assessments.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, going for walks in the countryside and being creative.
Contact me and I will aim to answer any questions that you may have.
