Are you interested in improving the life chances of looked after children and young people? An opportunity has arisen to join a team of Social Workers in the Looked After Children and Permanence Team based in Northallerton, North Yorkshire.

The team provide a service to looked after children from the Hambleton/Richmondshire area. As a social worker in the team, you need to hold a relevant qualification ( dipSW or Degree in Social Work) and be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.
You will be responsible for a caseload of looked after children, ages ranging from 0 to 18 years, ensuring that Care Plans for children are progressed, at times within the structure of Care Proceedings before the Court, in order to meet each child’s assessed needs in a strength based, solution focussed way.
