Sophie Tooke

SCRiPT Fellow

I qualified as an occupational therapist in 2020 from the University of East Anglia. I have had experience working within the NHS as a community occupational therapist in a rehabilitation team. I currently work within adult social care in a reablement service, which is very rewarding. This team is part of Norfolk First Support (NFS) and in January 2021 the new occupational therapy team was recruited to join NFS. The purpose of this team is to support individuals to regain as much independence as possible to prevent, reduce or delay their need for ongoing support and also empower individuals to be in control over their health and wellbeing. I am really excited to join the SCRiPT project and conduct research around the topic of reablement with the intention of developing the existing service to maximise outcomes for people.
