About Us Staff Mark Samuel - Family Link Worker I have worked for Dorset Youth Association since June 2013 as a Family Link Worker. Throughout my career I have worked with young people and their families in a variety of settings such as; disability teams, youth services and in schools. As Family Link Workers our work is practical and intensive, giving us the opportunity to get to know families well so we can really offer a bespoke service that is tailored to the family’s needs and can genuinely make a difference. Through the work I have done I have developed an interest in Child Psychology and I am now studying towards a BSc in Psychology. I enjoy working with complex families from across Dorset, helping support them make sustainable positive changes.
