About the role
This is a vital and rewarding role within the Fostering Placement Support Service. You will be directly supporting vulnerable children placed with ESCC foster carers.

You will be required to record your support and liaise with department social workers, supervising social workers and other agencies involved in the care of the young person. Working therapeutically you will often be lone working and you will need to be nurturing, patient and resilient whist also ensuring that you structure and plan your support time in a manner which develops and grows the young person. You will be supporting several children and carers and will receive training and regular support and supervision from the placement support management.
