We are looking to recruit skilled and experienced Senior Practitioner to join our busy Children’s Social Care department in our Family Safeguarding Team.

Family Safeguarding Teams

Family Safeguarding is the new practice model in Peterborough that has received such positive national coverage and the recognition of the Department for Education

There are 6 Family Safeguarding Teams in Peterborough and they manage complex caseloads of Child in Need, Children in need of Protection, Public Law Outline and care proceedings, focusing on children up to 12. They will all use a Motivational Interviewing approach where workers will act in partnership with children and their families to achieve sustainable change and improved outcomes for children. They are supported in this by a multi-disciplinary team that includes adult mental health workers, drug and alcohol recovery workers, and adult domestic abuse workers, and a bespoke intervention model. This is an exciting and creative time in the social work in these teams, and we would welcome applications from a diverse range of workers to enhance our existing workforce.
