Senior Practitioner, Adoption & Fostering Family & Friends
As a Senior Practitioner in the Family and Friends Team, you’ll safeguard and promote the welfare of Birmingham’s most vulnerable children and young people. We’ll look to you to deliver high quality services keeping wellbeing and safety at the heart of your approach.
You’ll work in close partnership with the wider team, to ensure each child’s wishes are met at every step of the way.
The teams undertake detailed assessments and provide support to family and friends carers who are applying to look after children known to them. They also assess and support applicants for special guardianship orders across the city. Much of the work is Court directed and you will be required to have a good understanding of Court processes, care proceedings work and permanence options for children.
