The Child Protection and Court Proceedings Team work directly with children and young people who are at risk of significant harm, ensuring that their wishes and feeling are heard and considered. The work is varied and involves working with:
- Families in the pre-proceedings process
- Public and private law proceedings
- Looked after children and children who are subject to supervision orders or a child protection plan.
The team is made up of social workers, senior social workers, team managers and a service manager, who work closely with partnership organisations, to reduce the risk to the children and their families.
We recognise this work can be demanding and challenging, both emotionally and professionally and we support and encourage regular supervision and personal development.
Working for the Child Protection and Court Proceedings Team provides a real opportunity to make a difference.
