The Disabled Children’s Team supports children with complex disabilities and their families.
The team consists of a Team Manager, Advanced Practitioner, Senior Social Workers, Social Workers, ASYE, Family Support worker and dedicated Business support.
We work with children aged 0-18 covering children in need, child protection and safeguarding, court work and Children in Care.
The team works closely with colleagues in health, education and the voluntary sector using a multi-disciplinary team approach. The Disabled Children’s Team is a supportive and committed team of practitioners who strive to achieve positive outcomes for some of the most vulnerable children in the county.
Social workers in this team work proactively to ensure in depth, person centred assessments are carried out, so that the local authority and external agencies can provide as much support as possible to the young person and their family/carers.
This team also works with other child protection, LAC, and CIC teams, to ensure children in these sectors are offered extra support as required, so experience working closely with multiple other contacts is a must.
The ideal candidate will have an in-depth knowledge of children's disability legislation, and should be aware of the help and support offerings that are available to both the young people, and their families. Ideally, this candidate will have already worked in a Disability Team, and will have several years
