Do you want to make Warwickshire more child friendly? Our aim is to make our county as safe, stable and full of opportunity as possible for children and young people with access to good health, education and other services.
The needs of children and families guide our social work practice as we work with them to help them be as healthy, happy, safe, skilled and heard as possible. It’s a big responsibility that can be challenging at times, but this is what drives us to develop and achieve, and you’ll be given the support an encouragement to develop and learn different skills.
Now is an exciting time to be a part of our team, the service received a Good Ofsted rating at the beginning of 2022 and we’re building on this by expanding our workforce and investing in sustainable services to make a difference to the lives of children and families.
If you want to build strong relationships and connections with families, join Warwickshire’s Children and Families service.
