Further Information
Peterborough City Council, through their Section 75 Agreement, provides mental health social work which is integrated in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust (CPFT).

Whilst we are an integrated service, Social Workers work to an aligned model of service delivery. We are based within multidisciplinary teams, which include Community Psychiatric Nurses, Doctors, Occupational Therapists, Psychologists, Support Workers and Peer Support Workers.

We are currently recruiting for a social worker or Social worker/AMHP to work across our service working with a caseload of working age adults.

Do you know Peterborough? Do you know what a vibrant and diverse city it is?

Our service links in with the acute inpatient and CRHTT services to ensure timely and effective discharge back into the person’s community after admission. We provide support to adults focusing on a person’s strengths and assets, working in a collaborative way with them, their carers and partner agencies to meet their needs, promote recovery, achieve outcomes and best value. We look to promote and create opportunities for people to self-manage, to be able to access the right help, at the right time when they need it, and to be co-producers of their plans, services and support.

All Social Workers working in our service are expected to have a good working knowledge of the Care Act, Mental Health Act and Mental Capacity Act (and DOLS). Social Workers are expected to apply a social perspective to their work and keep social care issues current in their practice to help promote independence and recovery.

We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Peterborough and want our workforce to reflect this diversity, which we believe is beneficial for our employees, the organisation and the communities we serve.

Appointment to this post will be subject to the outcome of an Enhanced Disclosure obtained through the Disclosure and Barring Service. The Council is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
