The Disabled Childrens Social Care Service has five teams with an allocation of approximately 711 children and young people.

The ages range from 0 to 18 years - all of whom have a disability and are vulnerable and have complex and challenging needs.

The teams work closely with a range of partners including the Health Service, Special Educational Needs Service, Schools and the voluntary sector to ensure the voices of children and young people are central to our practice.

The Senior Practitioner for Disabled Childrens Family Support, Short Breaks Team works with the team manager and another senior practitioner to lead the family support short breaks service and to support the promotion of independence enablement and inclusion.

You’ll play a lead role on our relationship-based, family-led practice model, supervising and supporting complex caseload, and providing support group and individual supervision for a number of family support workers. You will provide mentoring and quality assurance to less experienced colleagues, as well as supporting the Team Manager in their day to day running of the team.

We’ll also look to you to front a joined up approach, encouraging robust partnerships with other service teams and outside agencies, including the police, health, schools and voluntary organisations.

This is a key role to the Trust so naturally we’re looking for social care professionals with experience of working with vulnerable children, families, statutory bodies and voluntary agencies. You’ll need a recognised social work qualification and registration with the HCPC. You’ll back all this up external personal skills – including communication, sound judgement, analytical thinking and team work.
