What is it like to work as a Children’s Social Worker for SCC?
Social Work within Children and Young people’s services is a dynamic and adaptive service, which aims to have safer, happier children, and to enable families to create sustainable change for themselves at the heart of everything that we do.
We have multi-agency teams who work in accordance with the principle of one family, one plan, one lead worker to establish a sustained relationship more likely to bring about change.
Our Social Workers are passionate about making a difference and committed to high professional standards and continuous learning, which we encourage and support.
Social Work teams work in one of 13 localities grouped into 5 areas of Suffolk as shown in the map to the right. Each locality has a Child in Need (CIN) team and Early Help team. We have 4 Looked after Children (LAC) teams across county and 4 Fostering and Adoption teams based in Ipswich.
