Social Care Practitioner
You will be working to provide support services to adoptive families caring for children with complex needs. Joining an established Team of Senior Social Workers, you will specialise in providing a timely response to families who request an Assessment of their Adoption Support Needs and help to parent their children therapeutically. Our children are placed both citywide and with interagency adopters across the country so you will need to be willing to travel. The Team provides the full range of adoption support services to:
Adoptive families where there are difficulties throughout the child's life.
Adopted adults through Birth Records Counselling.
Other agencies in their post adoption support services and
- Our Area colleagues where there are safeguarding concerns.
We are looking for a qualified and registered social worker, with excellent interpersonal and assessment skills. You will also need a sound knowledge of Child Care and Adoption Legislation and substantial experience of working with the complex needs of children and their families. We offer opportunities for training and development, 4-6 weekly supervision and the support of a stable and experienced team.
