My name is Esther and I am the Social worker in School (Swis). I am of decent and am passionate about helping whanau and children in Mangere. In the Viscount Community I have had the privilege of helping families relocate into a new home, help them acquire and understand their full Work and Income privileges, help find temporary support for food and clothing and much more
I am in Viscount School from Monday to Friday so if your family or child require any support please don’t hesitate to call the school or call me on 021 792 032.
