Do you feel that you can work to deliver the outcomes of personalisation?
The Specialist Adult Pathway Team/SAPT sits alongside the Community Learning Disability Team as part of the All Age Disability Team. The role of SAPT is to work with young people aged 14-25 years and their families with a focus on preparing them for adulthood. This involves close liaison with the Children with Disabilities service and other Children’s Social Care teams.
You will be responsible for completing holistic strengths based assessments of young people with disabilities and their carers’, arranging and/or delivering services to meet identified support needs and reassessing needs as appropriate. The Strengths based approach aims to meet the identified individual outcomes for each Service user by working very closely with partner agencies including the NHS by undertaking Continuing Health Care screening and working closely with the local CCG and Education to ensure young people have an holistic assessment that accurately reflects their support needs as they transition over into adult services.
We are looking for experienced Social Work practitioners to join our expanding team, who have experience of working with children or adults with disabilities, including multi-disciplinary working, knowledge of the Care Act, SEND, Personalisation and delivering a high quality service to our service users and carers. The role will provide a varied caseload working within current legislation which will include Mental Capacity Act & Court of Protection work.
We are committed to personal and professional development to enhance your skills and practice. You can expect support from experienced managers and access to training and development to support you in your role, including career progression opportunities supported by regular supervision.
You must hold a HCPC recognised Social Work Qualification and be registered with the HCPC.

It is essential that you hold a full and valid driving licence and it is expected that you will either use a council vehicle or your own car.
An enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service Check (DBS) will be required for this job. A conviction may not exclude candidates from appointment but will be considered as part of the recruitment process.
