By using a strengths – based, whole-family approach, you make a difference by supporting families with children aged 5 -18 to make and maintain changes in their lives.
Here are some comments from parents who have been helped by Families Plus workers:
‘The work we’ve done with you means our daughter is communicating her feelings more easily than before, which is helping enormously.’
‘After Families Plus worked with our son, he is a lot more confident with school and in himself’
‘The parenting course we completed with Families Plus helped us massively… I can honestly say it has made us better parents’
What will you be doing?
- You will carry out whole family assessments of need, providing advice and guidance to families, in order to establish plans where appropriate. You’ll ensure that services are effective, and supportive for families with children/young people aged 5-18years old.
- You will review and monitor Early Help plans, responding to the changing of needs and renegotiating where appropriate in accordance with safeguarding procedures.
- You will manage your own caseload of specific work to ensure specialist inputs and effective outcomes achieved. Records and reports will need to be completed in accordance to professional and council guidelines.
- You will liaise and work with contacts from different sectors; including schools, health, social care and voluntary sector ensuring that communication is effective so knowledge and best practice is shared.
