This is a council with high ambitions, where teams have passion, integrity and commitment. The aim is high to ensure that they provide outstanding outcomes for the borough's children and young people.

About the Service

You will also oversee the delivery of intensive, flexible and effective family support and youth support interventions to prevent escalation of need and reduce demand for statutory services, including for young people on the edge of care. The service also helps families with Children In Need and/or Child Protection Plans where additional targeted support is requested as part of the plan.

  • Current HCPC registration
