A Local Authority based in the South West has recently created a Kinship team with a more which focuses on carrying out SGO Assessments and ensuring these placements are supported.


  • Newly formed team which has a more dedicated function rather than being a part of the generic fostering team.

  • You will have the opportunity to contribute to the development of the team and service and suggest ways of working
  • Will be managed by an extremely competent & experienced manager who has excellent rapport with his staff and is very fair.
  • Excellent opportunities for training and development - the Local Authority will provide the opportunity to attend courses provided by external providers

Previously the Local Authority had this function as a part of the wider fostering team but recently created a new team to provide a more focused service whilst providing service users with continuity of care and access to staff who solely focus on Kinship making them specialists.

    This is an opportunity for experienced candidates who would like to contribute to the development of the team. You will be encouraged to use your creativity to further develop the team and provide suggestions as to how practice can be improved.
