Kate Wareham

Director Young People and Families - Catch-22

I have worked with children and families on the edge of care for over 20 years in both the public and third sectors. I worked for Manchester Local Authority for 12 years including developing a Trailblazer Sure Start Centre, rolling out the Sure Start Children’s Centre programme, managing place based Children’s Trust arrangements and then leading on the Community Budgets / Troubled Families agenda. I moved on to supporting other LAs around transformational change in children’s services before joining Catch22 in 2015. As Director for Young People and Families at Catch22 I oversee a range of services including Missing From Home, Child Exploitation, Substance Misuse and Emotional Health and Wellbeing. Whatever the current commissioning umbrella all our provision is strengths based and solution focused. I am passionate about developing services which meet the holistic needs of children, young people and families building resilience to better manage future adversity.
