Children with Disabilities Team

Coronavirus update

Subject to the ongoing situation, it's essential that we continue recruiting safely. Therefore, interviews and communication will be virtual wherever possible and this will be communicated to you directly by the hiring manager.

Please also expect that advert closing dates and interview dates may change as required. We still continue to welcome applications for our current roles and wish you the best of luck with your application.

We would welcome applications especially for our most critical roles to ensure we're supporting our residents

Wherever possible all children and young people in Surrey are supported to have their individual needs met by their family and by early help services available in their local community.

The Children with Disabilities Teams provide support to children and young people with disabilities in cases where their individual needs cannot be met by their extended family or by early help services within the community. Our social workers provide a specialist service to those children and young people in Surrey with permanent and substantial disabilities.

Social workers within the Children with Disabilities Teams ensure the safety of children with disabilities in Surrey and support them towards independence.

Professionals within our Children with Disabilities Teams work closely with families and children so that they feel more supported, building resilience within the family. Through early help and prevention, the teams support children before crises so that issues can be addressed and deescalated.

We're looking for professionals who are as passionate about children with disabilities in Surrey as we are. We are constantly striving to improve outcomes for young people in Surrey, and that means giving children with disabilities the opportunity to be heard, and listening to what they say.

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:

  • SEND teams,
  • Health Services,
  • Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS), and
  • Independent Reviewing officers and carers.
