This is an exciting role for an experienced Family Support Worker who is passionate about helping children and families achieve their full potential.
You will be joining the UP Team as well as playing a key role in the team at Roundwood, they are both utterly committed to transforming life chances of children through preventative work that supports children with social, emotional and mental health needs.
You will hold a caseload of children and families with complex, multiple needs, working within the School and in families’ homes to support increased school attendance, reduce the likelihood of further educational and social exclusion, follow up on child protection matters, enable the family to access local support networks and build resilience and autonomy through parenting support (group and individual).
These children may be on the role of a mainstream school with the plan of a phased return, or they may be staying at Roundwood to complete the rest of their education, so interventions will need to be targeted and both short and longer-term.
You will be working alongside the dedicated Roundwood team, and in partnership with a number of agencies, in particular health and educational professionals, the Police, CAMHS, social care, housing services, substance misuse teams, domestic abuse teams, and other adult services.
