SW Practitioner-Looked after Children

Location Bedford
Salary £38.00 - £40.50 per hour
Discipline
The Permanency Team support and monitor the well being of the children/young people aged 0 to16 who are in care of the local authority. We try to achieve permanence of the children/young people in care by matching them with the permanent families for example friends and family, foster carers, SGO and Adoption. In some cases where it is safe, we rehabilitate children back into the care of their birth family. We regularly visit the children/young people in care listen to their views and wishes and prepare a care plan for each child. The care plan included their physical and emotional health, their safety, education, independent skills, and family time with friends and family. Bedford Borough has been graded ‘Good’ in their recent Ofsted Inspection and we are looking for practitioners to join the service to bring in new ideas to support our improvement journey. If you have a strong desire to raise the quality of care provided to Children looked after, come and join us.
