Dr Nicola Curran is the managing director of MPS. She began working in CLA services in 2002 as a residential social worker in multi-bedded homes. Following this she set up a pilot project at Manchester City Council for children who had experienced domestic abuse. This involved developing referral systems for children experiencing mental health difficulties, resources to support social care practitioners and developing direct work resources for children and young people impacted by domestic abuse. Interventions included safety planning, project work and developing groupwork in schools around healthy relationships. Nicola then became strategic lead for children and families in the 3rd sector in Manchester. In this role she supported third sector organisations to develop safeguarding practice and supported innovative partnership bids. In this role Nicola was the lead for safeguarding in the 3rd sector and attended the safeguarding partnership board and co-chaired the exploitation subgroup. Nicola led on the development of a partnership bid that was successful in receiving 1.3 million in lottery funding to support children and young people who’s parents had experienced domestic abuse, mental health and substance misuse difficulties. Nicola has worked in CAMH services specialising in CLA pathways before working in Meadows Care and later developing Meadows Psychology Service.
