The Role

37.0 Hours per Week

SEND Social Care is a frontline children’s team with a specialism in disability/additional needs. The team offers a social work service for all children with complex needs. We support our staff to deliver services in partnership with health and education professionals who are able to enhance the life experiences and chances of children and young people with a disability and their families, keeping them safe and healthy.

We aim to provide a responsive service which is able to recognise and meet the needs of children and all their family members.

You will be required to work with a variety of children, young people, and their carers, including people with learning disabilities, Autistic Spectrum Disorders (ASD), physical disabilities, and mental health difficulties. You will also support young people with disabilities in their transition from children’s to adult services. You will be required to undertake outcome focused tasks, support planning, reviews, risk assessments and reports, crisis intervention/duty, and safeguarding within Child In Need, Child Protection, and Looked After Children procedures. Focusing on strengths and utilising an asset-based approach, you will enable children to identify hoped for outcomes, meet their full potential, and maximise their independence.

The team is based across two sites – one in the North and one in the South of the county. There is flexibility with regards to where you would be based. We support our staff to deliver services which are able to enhance the life experiences and chances of children and young people with a disability and their families.

We are looking for the right people to join us. In Warwickshire we put our people first – our customers, carers and our staff. We value and develop our workforce to ensure staff can provide the best care and protection possible for the people of Warwickshire.
