Your role will involve working as part of a small, close-knit team to provide a high quality, consistent supportive and dependable standard of service. You will be required to interact with the families and produce well written logs which will be used to inform the final assessments which will help the Courts decide on the future care planning for the family.

Caring, supportive individuals are invited to apply and full on-the-job training, as well as a DBS check will be provided.
