The Care Management service works with children and young people who are subject to Child in Need or Child Protection plans. Included within the Care Management service are our Court Teams, whose work is dedicated solely to children in care proceedings. This enables strong working relationships with the Court, Cafcass and IRO colleagues and a specialist service provision tailored to ensuring that permanence plans for children are child centred and achieved in a timely way.
A further specialist team sits within the service, supporting children with disabilities. Our work is undertaken from a strengths based perspective, using a Signs of Safety model, and relational social work is at the heart of our practice, within Care Management and across the Trust.
We are passionate about listening and responding to children, families and those who work in the Trust, and promote an environment in which there is shared purpose, celebrated successes and a drive for continuous improvement across all services.
