We are a team who has recently grown in size, with a focus on investing our resources on strengthening and supporting our care community to keep The Promise locally. 

The goal of our service is to create the conditions for our care community to thrive through relationship based practice, high quality supervision and training for social workers and caregivers, and through celebration of the role our caregivers play providing love, care and support for children and young people.

This is a great time to be joining our team and we would welcome applications from social workers with experience working in fostering or children’s services.
