Social Care - Children & Families

The Role

 
Being a children’s Social Worker has never been an easy option but here in Swindon we’ve made great progress in working seamlessly with other childcare practitioners to provide an environment that provides all-inclusive support. Our Children and Families Service is fully integrated with children’s health services and we have professional practitioners like Health Visitors, Paediatric Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and many more working alongside our Social Workers. In most cases they are even co-located, fostering an environment of real collaboration, cooperation and support that, not only improves our ability to respond, but is a real benefit to the children that need our help and support.
 
Our forward thinking management team recognises the importance of having manageable caseloads and the need for reflective supervision, on-going support and mentoring. As a result our Social Workers get all the help and support they need to do well in their roles and is a key factor in providing the best possible outcomes for the children.
 
With a formal career progression scheme, a dedicated training and development programme, a leadership programme, and a highly competitive rewards package that recognises and reflects the importance of this vital role, there’s never been a better time to be a Children’s Social Worker in Swindon.
