Early Help Worker - Unit

Advert
KCC Early Help Vision is that every child and young person, from 0 to 19 (25) years and their family, who needs early help services will receive them in a timely and responsive way, so that they are safeguarded, their educational, social and emotional needs are met and outcomes are good, and they are able to contribute positively to their communities now and in the future, including their active engagement in learning and employment.

We have an exciting opportunity for a permanent Early Help Worker to join our dynamic Early Help Intensive Unit in the Swale District to continue the positive work we are doing in the area.

You will hold a Level 3 diploma (or equivalent) in childcare, Health, Social Care, Youth Justice, Education, Youth Work or a relevant field with experience in a relevant role or evidence of relevant experience.

You will manage a workload of complex cases, providing a high quality, effective and responsive service for children, young people and their families, targeting support as required at critical times and stages of development. The issues may include domestic abuse and violence, out of court disposals, prevention of the need for statutory social care intervention, children and young people experiencing significant attendance or behavioural difficulties, parenting intervention and step-downs from Children’s Social Work Services.

You will have the ability to build relationships with children, young people and their families. You will be able to gather and interpret information, undertake assessments and deliver 1:1 work, tailored to the needs of individual children/families, underpinned by the Signs of Safety Model. You will have knowledge of safeguarding and child protection and regulatory frameworks. You will work closely with a range of partner agencies, including schools. You will need to work collaboratively to innovate and find new solutions, taking personal and professional responsibility for your actions and performance.

Occasional evening and weekend work may be required.

The ability to travel in a timely and flexible manner across the wide geographical area of the Swale District and throughout the county of Kent at various times of the day is essential.
