A great opportunity exists for a Primary Mental Health post within Corporate Parenting Service LBWF. We have developed a Corporate Parenting Service based on a reflective group supervision model that we call Practice Support Groups. At the heart of our practices are relationships that make the difference, focused on creating better outcomes for our children and young people. We have transformed the way that we work with our children and young people. This includes clinical support as part of the practice support groups and foster carers support. We also offer one to one clinical support to our children looked after and young people as part of this process. This is an essential ingredient to understand and develop support plans for our children and young people.
