In Warwickshire we are passionate about supporting people with disabilities to live as independently as possible. We provide person-centred support to individuals in our communities to enable them to reach their potential and to keep themselves safe from harm.
Within Disability Services we have three teams supporting adults with Learning Disabilities, Physical Disabilities and Sensory needs, and young people in Transition. Our teams are made up of Social Workers, Social Care Practitioners, and are supported by Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants. We work across Warwickshire and apply a strength-based approach, striving to connect people to their communities, recognise their assets and capabilities, and promoting wellbeing so our residents can live happy and fulfilled lives.
Working within one of our teams will give you opportunity to work wide a varied range of individuals and partner organisations to make a meaningful difference to people’s lives. You will be responsible for undertaking strength-based assessments under the Care Act 2014, working collaboratively with people to plan both informal and formal support which promotes their ongoing wellbeing. You will also work within other legislation including Mental Capacity Act and Mental Health Act.
We want Warwickshire to be the best it can be, and anyone joining one of our teams will receive regular supervision, opportunities for reflection, access to a range of training, and opportunities for continued professional development. If you are looking to join a service which embraces diversity, faces challenges head-on, and values the wellbeing of its communities and staff, we want to hear from you.
