Remedy Recruitment Group are currently seeking an experienced Qualified Social Worker to work within a Children with Disabilities Team for Achieving for Children based in Chessington.

Job Purpose

We are the team who work with all of the children referred for services required for our most vulnerable disabled children. We undertake all of the initial assessments with our children who are referred through our Single Point of Access. We respond to child protection concerns and initiate Initial CP conferences, we complete thorough assessments which inform the next steps. This can be to offer advice and guidance, short term or long term support as a child in need, to step over to family support colleagues and in some situations may mean seeking legal support and entering proceedings. We also work with children who are looked after which may be because of their being in a residential placement and thus away from home for a significant amount of time. We assess need and draw on our short breaks offer and coordinate care packages. Whatever we do, we do as a team. You will be supported by your line manager but also from being able to seek peer support through group supervision and informal discussions. Caseloads are low when comparing to other London Boroughs which means you have time to make a difference. This is varied and interesting work.
