The Edge of Care Service will provide structured, evidence-based interventions that enable families to develop problem solving skills, build resilience and achieve positive, sustainable behaviour change. Our trained and experienced staff will provide a rapid response to children and families in crisis, enabling them to address and overcome the difficulties that have led to the family being at risk of breakdown, and prevent further escalation and referral to care proceedings.

Whether it's to limit the risk of children being moved into care, to address complex multiple needs across a family unit or to support the re-unification of families, we are passionate and committed to developing and delivering innovative and impactful solutions that meet need and improve the lives of children and families.

We are seeking to recruit suitable people to work within a new care team. The team will work directly with families on the edge of care in a residential setting.

NVQ/Diploma Level 3 Residential Childcare or equivalent.

Experience of working with children and young people

An understanding of child development and challenging behaviour

A positive attitude and a restorative approach when working with young people

Sleep-ins will be paid at GBP 81 per night.

The above post is subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
