Social Worker – Children in Care – Sandwell
Salary: From £27.53 to £29.93 per hour
SW – SSW
The Children in Care Service is split into 2 parts: one works with Looked After children and young people under 14 and the other works with those 14 and older. The Under 14s teams focus on securing permanence and helping children and young people understand their life journey through direct work and life story work. Whilst the 14+ team look to support children and young people with preparing for adulthood and independence.
Social workers are responsible for undertaking statutory Looked After visits, preparing for and attending Looked After review meetings and Personal Education Plan (PEP) meetings as well as other tasks associated with supporting Looked After children and young people and their carers.
The children and young people are all on Care Orders with the exception of a very few who are S20 accommodated. There is very little court work in the team, we look to ensure all of our children and young people only have our involvement where it is necessary and so there is some court work associated with discharging Care Orders and applying for SGOs.
