Windsor & Maidenhead Social Services are looking for a QSW to join their C&F POD service.

About the service Achieving for Children is an award-winning social enterprise created by Kingston and Richmond Councils in 2014, expanding into the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead in 2017. Achieving for Children is responsible for delivering children's services in all three local authorities. Our vision for Achieving for Children is simple: by bringing together professional expertise from the two founding local authorities, and by putting children and young people at the heart of everything we do, we will be able to deliver improved outcomes for families and give children and young people the best start in life. As a social worker you will be based in Safeguarding Pods. About the role As an allocated social worker, you will manage a caseload of children who may be on child protection plans, child in need plans or children looked after plans. You will undertake visits to children and families and complete assessments and direct work to ensure the safety and wellbeing of children and young people. Other duties may include; having strategy discussion (open cases), safety planning, attending child protection conference reviews, children looked after review; and child in need reviews. Allocated social workers will also investigate concerns regarding a child or young person's safety or wellbeing, make an assessment of the risk and protective factors in the family and decide on the most appropriate course of action. A key part of the role entails building effective relationships with children and families and working collaboratively with our partner agencies.
