Our social workers make a real difference. Every day they work with families to help children and young people who have a significant disability or impairment and have difficulty achieving their ambitions.
  • Listening to children and young people with a disability and putting them at the heart of all that we do.
  • Working in partnership with families, equipping them with the skills they need to ensure young people live in happy, healthy and safe homes.
  • Working within a multi-agency network to ensure that assessment and planning is well coordinated and leads to positive outcomes for the child.

Whether you have just passed your ASYE, or are a Senior Social Worker with 15 years experience, let’s talk as we can appoint to any appropriate grade to suit your skills and experience.  If you can demonstrate experience from a Child Protection background, or perhaps you already work in a disabilities service – you’ll find a great fit in this team. 
What will you be doing?
  • We have a strong culture of giving staff the time, freedom and support to explore new and better ways of doing things, so we’re looking for individuals keen to use their creativity to deliver high quality, child-centred practices, which ensure the best outcomes for children and families.
  • The 0-18 Children with Disabilities social care team within the 0-25 service has several functions, one of which is to provide information, advice and support to children, young people, their families and carers to enable children with disabilities to enjoy and achieve social inclusion. The team has a duty to safeguard vulnerable children and young people and to assess need, develop plans and provide services where appropriate.  We will then review these plans regularly to ensure that outcomes are being achieved.
  • The 0-18 Children with Disabilities social care team undertakes statutory social work in the areas of Child protection, Children in Need and the initial stages of Looked after Children, as well as working within the Public Law outline and Care proceedings on occasion.  You will ensure vulnerable children and young people with a significant impairment or disability are identified, protected and supported to achieve positive outcomes through the provision of well planned, integrated and coordinated services.
