“PREVIOUS APPLICANTS NEED NOT APPLY”
Camden is listening to everyone, including you.
We’re giving a platform to people inside and outside our community. Because we’re not just home to the UK’s fast-growing economy. We’re home to the most important conversations happening today. And we’re making radical social change a reality, so that nobody gets left behind. As a Family Worker, you’ll provide support to families with children from pregnancy to age 5 years, helping to improve futures and reduce inequality.
The Integrated Early Years Service (Camden Sure Start) has an ambitious vision for young children and families in the borough in which integrated universal and targeted services are developed and delivered through strong relationships between midwives, health visitors and GPs, early education providers, Family Workers, Job Centre Plus, primary schools, voluntary sector organisations and parents. Based on local need, services are delivered from children’s centres and across a network of community buildings, in five localities covering the whole of Camden.
You will be mainly based at one of Camden’s 5 community Children Centres hubs. The Children Centre’s offer is part of Camden’s Early Help services which focuses on making interventions at an early stage, once problems for children have begun but before they escalate. It involves taking a joined-up, multilevel, holistic approach to reduce the potential for poor long-term outcomes for children and their families.
Please note these posts are based at Camden’s five children’s centres and staff may need to work from different venues to meet the needs of the service.
The integrated Family Support and Health Visiting teams deliver the Universal Healthy Child Programme and targeted interventions for children and their mums, dads and carers, from pregnancy to age five years. The emphasis is on prevention, early intervention and whole-family assessment, using the common assessment framework (CAF). Through universal screening, the Health Visiting teams identify children, mums, dads and carers with additional needs and provide support to improve outcomes and reduce inequality. The multi-agency teams consist of Family Support and Health Visiting as well as a range of multi-disciplinary expertise, including CAMHS, Speech and Language Therapy, Welfare Rights Advice, Employment and Training support and Housing advice.
