Job description: Hi All My Client Peter borough City Council are looking for Experienced social worker to join their Family Safeguarding Team, Based at Sand Martin House.

The Family Safeguarding Teams focus on working in partnership with families where the child or children is at risk due to the behaviour of an adult(s). It tackles the 'toxic trio' of domestic abuse, substance abuse and mental health issues. 'Motivational interviewing' techniques focus on each adult's strengths, supporting them to make changes that will benefit the children in the household.
Family Safeguarding in Peter borough is now being delivered by six teams, following the recruitment and training of the first six of 12 adult workers who will work alongside the children's social workers. Every member of the team has now been trained in motivational interviewing and the new tools in place to support families. An important move has been to reduce child social workers' caseloads from 20-25 down to around 15. This way they can focus more deeply on each family and intensify the level of support.
The Family Safeguarding Teams have received praise from Chairs of Child Protection Conferences, who have already noted more detailed reporting and greater insight from social workers as to each family situation and risk to children.
