New Social Work Practice Model

A Local Authority in the South East has received a grant from the Department of Educations Innovation Fund to implement the Family Safeguarding Model.


  • New Model has had a significant impact and has helped another Local Authority achieve a 49% reduction in the number of Children with CP Plans
  • Will be based in a co-located multi agency team with specialists in Substance Misuse, Parental Mental Health, Domestic Abuse and access to Clinical Psychologists.
  • Will receive all the training and support required including Motivational Interviewing which has a large coaching element at its core
  • Majority of staff in the team are permanent who are well established members of the service
  • The Local Authority covers a small geographical region
  • The authority received a Good Ofsted during its last inspection
  • This is an excellent opportunity for a Social Worker to be involved in the roll out of a new Practice Model which has so far had an excellent impact within another Local Authority where it had been implemented, reducing the number of Children on CP Plans by 49%. The model aims to provide a more holistic package of care which addresses key themes that are prominent within the region - these include Domestic Abuse, Parental Mental Health, CSE and Missing Children.

    As the Local Authority covers a small geographical region there is less travel involved compared to some of the larger authorities in the area. Staff within the team are able to visit most of their allocation within a short period of time and rarely have to travel outside the region.
