An exciting opportunity has arisen for a qualified Social Worker with full HCPC registration to join our Long Term Team.

This will be to establish eligibility for Social Care services in line with the Care Act (2014) framework, along with completing Safeguarding investigations and working with the Mental Capacity Act will be an integral part of the role. The role involves working with adults with a broad range of needs including people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, older people and people with dementia.
