Yasmin Kovic - United Kingdom Yasmin is a deaf social worker with 15 years post qualification experience, including working in a residential setting for deaf adults and young people with mental health problems and learning difficulties and with students in a college for deaf people. For five years, she was employed by the London Borough of Newham as a Social Worker with Deaf Children and Their Families/Carers, where she undertook both family support work and child protection work. In 2003 Yasmin joined the NSPCC where she developed and delivered a safety skills programme with groups of deaf children. At this time she also undertook freelance consultant Social Work with Deaf Children and their Families/Carers - specifically in complex child protection cases. Yasmin moved to the NSPCC, Young Peoples Centre in 2005, where she supported young people using, one to one work, a variety of different group work programmes, drop-in sessions and young people's participation. She also continued her safeguarding work with deaf children and during that time established a service for deaf children and young people. Yasmin has been working since 2007 as the National Safeguarding Advisor for Deaf Children and Young People, where her role was to promote the safeguarding of all deaf children in the UK. In April 2009 this post was upgraded to a Senior Consultant and Yasmin continues to do the safeguarding deaf children work plus additional commissioned external work. She will continue in this role running three national groups: the Safeguarding Deaf Children Interagency group, the Social Workers with Deaf Children group and the 'Stop It Now' deaf sex offenders group.
