Discipline
The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea is looking for social worker to join the Ladbroke South Locality Team.
Children Services uses a locality model which means we work children and families from across the Ladbroke Grove area in West London, from the point of referral until case closure. Our work incudes CIN, CP, LAC and court work.
The team consists of 4 social workers, 2 Advanced Practitioner, a Business Co-ordinator, Family Therapist, Team Manager and Deputy Team Manager. Children's services have adapted the systemic model of social work which enables practitioner to focus on issues in their social and relational context in a holistic way.
Practitioners benefit from having a relatively small case load and as such they are able to develop strong working relationships with families and professionals.
Kensington and Chelsea’s OFSTED rating is excellent in every practice areas. Our most recent OFSTED inspection stated “Staff in Kensington and Chelsea are highly skilled, qualified and experienced. They embody the values of care, respect and integrity and visibly care about the children they are responsible for and their families.”
The team is based in Ladbroke Grove, however, due to Covid-19 we temporarily relocated to Kensington Town Hall in W8. We are operating a hybrid model of working (working from home and the office). Social Workers are required to undertake duty one week a month at the Town Hall.
