Children’s Social Worker - Looked after Children

Be the difference

We are building a new approach,

To put children and young people at the heart of everything we do.

"In the past year we've really been putting in place the bedrock, what I call the conditions for success. The second step of our journey is all about the quality of the work, the relationships between our social workers and the children and their families, how we support our staff, how we support people and how we really get the best quality of services. The third step will be about getting ourselves to outstanding services, and we want you to be part of that journey."

Dave Hill, Executive Director – Children, Family and Learning

About the role

Surrey County Council have realigned services to provide a more seamless service to children and their families so to reduce the number of case holders supporting children coming in to contact with professionals from the front door to becoming looked after.

As a Social Worker in a Looked After Children's Team, your aim and role will be to support children living with relatives, friends or foster families and perspective adopters or older children living in children's homes and semi-independent units. You will be responsible for ensuring their safety and support them towards independence.

Through regular visits, assessments and reviewing their Care Plan, you will nurture and develop meaningful relations with these children; understand and interpret their wishes and champion and support them to reach their full potential. Occasionally, you will be required to prepare reports and attend court. You will be supported in this challenging role with regular supervision, and by working alongside other social workers, family support workers and partnership organisations such as: Health Services, Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and Independent Reviewing officers and carers.

Due to the location of some of our placements, you will have the opportunity to travel to other parts of the country.

Hear what our Looked after Children say about our Social Workers

"My social worker helped by getting me employment,

I had no motivation to work or do anything."

"Best experience is when they just sat there and

listened to me even though they couldn't fix everything at the time."

"When in care I had a really good social worker

who campaigned to stay in foster placement

even though told it was too expensive.

I was settled and didn't want to move schools."
