Sheffield Council's First Contact Team acts as the first point-of-call for anyone in Sheffield who needs advice or guidance about social care support. We respond to urgent and non-urgent requests for support and will help work out what options are available to people. If people need support services to help them remain safe and well, we will help coordinate that. The team responds to all safeguarding referrals to people who aren't already receiving Sheffield Council's support. Social workers in the team take a lead on safeguarding concerns and mental capacity work. Applicants need to have a good understanding of and experience working on safeguarding concerns and mental capacity assessments and ideally know how to use Liquid Logic to record their work. The team's office base is in Sheffield city centre, but most work is being completed remotely at the moment.
