The 0-25 Social care service

This service is for a small group of children and young adults with a disability.

The team is made up of a Team Manager, Senior Social Worker, Social Workers and Social Work Assistants.

The Social Worker carries out an assessment of need, providing advice and guidance to service users and their carers. They establish care plans when appropriate, ensuring that services are effective and that they meet requirements of legislation, regulations and codes of practice. The Social Worker will review and monitor care plans and the quality of service provision, responding to changing needs and renegotiating service provision where appropriate. Social Workers also investigate Safeguarding concerns and complete Child in Need/Strategy meetings as well as Child Protection Conferences.

 

The Social Worker will manage their own caseload or specific projects to ensure specialist inputs are obtained and effective outcomes achieved. The Social Worker will liaise and work with contacts from different sectors, including health and the voluntary sector, sometimes as part of a multi-disciplinary team, ensuring that communication is effective and that knowledge and best practice are shared. The Social Worker will complete and present records and reports in accordance with professional and council guidelines, taking action when necessary in accordance with Safeguarding procedures.
