Working for us
We have a good track record in improving outcomes for children.
In a recent multi-agency review, inspectors from the Joint Targeted Area Inspection found: "...that frontline social workers were knowledgeable about individual children and ensure that their needs are met at an appropriate level. Equally strong, is the way in which managers oversee and analyse the work of social workers - with Inspectors stating they had seen how this was improving outcomes for children."
Our 'Partners in Practice' status allows us to remove barriers and create a model of excellence that other local authorities and the whole social care system can learn from. We are committed to sharing this knowledge throughout the organisation and with our partners such as the councils in Isle of Wight and Torbay.
Our district-based teams deliver a comprehensive service under the direction of a single district manager, with each area being supported by multi-agency early help hubs.
We have established strong collaborative working and continue to improve our multi-agency partnerships and support to understand and resolve complex problems.
The quality of the people who work for us is fundamental to the service we deliver. We want to keep improving to provide an outstanding service, making a real difference to children and their families. We will invest in you and provide you with the support you need to be able to perform to your best, through regular supervision training and development.
