Key to this is a committed workforce who always gives their best. Offering a fast paced, progressive working environment, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council is a great career move.

We have many reasons to be proud of our existing services for children, young people and their families in Redcar and Cleveland.

If you share the ethos of Redcar and Cleveland’s Children and Families Directorate, this could be the opportunity you are looking for.

The Children and Family Therapy team consists of experienced therapists who deliver a wide range of therapeutic services to Children in our Care and to children on the Edge of Care. This includes interventions for children and young people, parents, foster carers, family groups and sibling groups where emotional need has been identified in relation to trauma, attachment, separation, and loss. The team work systemically, and all interventions involve working with family members, in particular parents and carers, as well as liaising with other relevant agencies

As Principal Children & Family Therapist you will be responsible for the management and development of the Children & Family Therapy Service to ensure the team provide suitable and timely responses to referrals received from Social Work Teams, with the aim of preventing children and young people from becoming Children in our Care and to improve placement stability for Children in Our Care.
