Workers in this team form longer term relationships with families to help them achieve what they want to. They help families in a purposeful way and manage risk confidently. Workers here are able to be kind, consistent and focussed in their work with children, young people and families.
These teams work with families on a long term plan, looking to utilise all parts of their networks to minimise risk to children and build resilience. They are involved in all aspects of work, including planning and review for children receiving care and support as well as those with a child protection plan, or until court proceedings conclude. Work in this team is about helping people work out what matters to them and then helping them achieve their goals.
Each of these teams is made up of a team manager, 1 practitioner manager, 7 social workers, 6 social care officers, 2 family aids, 1 Support Worker and business support. We are very clear that caseloads need to be manageable to enable workers to support families in the best way possible.
