The Adults Learning Disabilities and Autism Service are looking for social workers to join their team.

These roles are based in Leatherhead or Guildford.

The team forms part of the Council's whole life approach to ensure that people of any age with learning disabilities and autism can live healthy, safe, independent and fulfilling lives. We are working with our partners to develop an integrated service and improved journey for residents. We want to ensure services join together and smooth out some of the issues service users and their carers experience at different stages in their lives.

The team will work with our partners who lead advocacy services for disabled people, family carers and faith groups together with the Partnership Board. Their help is essential to ensure we explore the full range of expertise and resources in our communities. Gradually we will introduce an aligned All Age approach to helping children, young people and adults with a disability in Surrey.

The work of the team will be organised around 4 themes:

  • Building community capacity and access to universal services
  • Shaping independence and day opportunities
  • Transforming accommodation and support
  • Delivering the 'Own front door' programme

Each of these themes are interdependent, as is every member of the team.

If you are interested in this role please send your updated CV in the first instance.
