Lauren McClintock (OLR Team Manager)
During my career, I have gained a wealth of experience ranging across various sectors, including: youth justice services; children’s residential services; as well as, adult residential and community services, supporting individuals involved within the justice system who experienced complex and interrelated issues associated with offending behaviour.
Having gained LLB (Hons) Law, MSc in Criminal Justice and the BA (Hons) in Social Work, I began my career in local authority social work over ten years ago. I have worked in Justice Services as a Social Worker before progressing into the role as a Team Leader, having oversight of statutory community and throughcare casework, specifically complex high risk violent and/or sexual offenders, including those subject to MAPPA and OLR. My experience as a Practice Teacher and as an Associate Lecturer, has significantly developed my skills for both students and staff, ensuring that I keep up to date with current knowledge of theory, research and recent advances in social work practice, particularly within risk assessment and risk management.
I joined the Risk Management Authority in 2022 as Order for Lifelong Restriction Team Manager. I have keen interest in the risk assessment and management of individuals who present a high risk of general and sexual violence, particularly intimate partner violence.
