Southwark Council is an exciting place to work as we transform the way we work to reflect our drive for excellence We recognise that having the right people, with the right experience and skills, in the right jobs, is at the heart of our organisation. Without this we cannot deliver. We believe that everyone in the team is a valued member, and we will give you responsibility and the opportunity to make a difference from the beginning.

 

The role:

 

The aim of the Re-Connect Coordinator is to help create lasting support networks for young people in care and care leavers. The Re-Connect approach draws upon a combination of a family finding model, which originated in the United States and the family group conference model, which originated in New Zealand.

 

The premise of the approach is valuing continuity and permanence of relationships (be it with relatives or others connected to the child e.g. former foster carers or teachers) that offer ongoing support, help clarify and contextualise historical events, and reinforce identity and a sense of belonging for the young person. This network is then brought together in a family group conference (FGC) to make a life-long support plan with, and for, the young person, which should be integrated into their care and pathway plans.
