Children's social care
We believe that improved life chances and safety should be central to all the decisions we make on behalf of children and young people. Our decisions are informed by listening to all those involved in the life of a young person, including the young people themselves, parents and other professionals.
We offer a range of opportunities
We are committed to do the right thing for families. We aim to provide the right level of support at the right time and work closely with our colleagues in ‘Early Help’ services. However, if children and young people may be unsafe, we provide holistic assessments and evidence-based interventions, to reduce risk and minimise family distress. When a decision is taken that children are not safe, we will ensure there is a prompt and robust approach to both our child protection process, where necessary, progressing to court, with a clear view about permanency planning.
Our values are at the heart of everything we do, and we are looking for team members who can really commit to what we believe and what we want to achieve for our young people.
