My name is Sam Willis and I am the new social worker employed by Barnardos to work with you and your families if the need arises.

I was born in Wellington New Zealand but grew up in the Emerald Isle that is Ireland where I studied social work. Having worked as a child and family social worker since I understand that family life is always changing and even at the best times stressful and that we all need a little support now and again !

The types of things that I can do to help children and families varies from one on one / group work with children to help manage behavior, like anxiety and anger, to helping families access community resources and everything in between.

I am here to listen, support and advocate on behalf of you and your children so please don’t hesitate in contacting me if you think I can be of help. My contact details are 027 2355763, 04 8011708 or Samantha.willis@barnardos.org.nz. Alternatively if you prefer, you can speak to the school and they can contact me on your behalf
