Our Children’s Social Work practice is driving to transform the services we deliver to our communities. We are proud that our colleagues have been recognised with a national ‘Social Worker of the year’ award for the past two years and to be shortlisted twice this year for the prestigious LGA award within the Children’s services category.
One of our LGA award nominations relates to our whole system implementation work and achievements on ‘Signs of Safety and Wellbeing’ across the service where we are recognised as leaders in this field. Our overall "Outstanding" from OFSTED in 2019 reflects the huge commitment of staff at all levels throughout the service, to achieve the very best outcomes for children possible.
Committed to continuing and extending our practice, learning and development of our responses to children and families, we recognise evolving needs, societal context, and responsibilities of our service. As such, we are also excited to be part of a new Social Work Teaching Partnership between Suffolk and Norfolk’s County Council team, the University of East Anglia and the University of Suffolk.
If you are looking to grow professionally and further your career in social work, we offer supportive and pioneering practice where you can make a real difference to the Children and families of Suffolk.
