Further Information

This post is employed by North Yorkshire County Council and seconded to Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council to work within the newly formed No Wrong Door Hub. Based primarily in Redcar there may be some requirement to attend North Yorkshire as required. The secondment is scheduled to last two years, with the post then transferring to Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.

No Wrong Door – Strengthening Families Protecting Children (SFPC) programme is a pioneering way of providing support to young people who are within or on the edge of the care system across selected Local Authorities (LA).

The DfE have invested £84 million over five years to support eighteen LAs to improve work with families and safely reduce the number of children entering care. North Yorkshire is immensely proud to be one of three authorities nationally to attract significant funding from the DfE’s SFPC programme and will extend NWD to Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.

The objective of SFPC is to improve social work practice and decision making so that the best choices are made for every child, and overall results are improved. As well as better outcomes for children and families, which will be indicated by, among other things, contacts with police, health and schools, it is also hoped that the programme will lead to a reduction of demand at the critical end of the spectrum leading to a reduced spend on children’s social care.

We are looking for a NWD Hub Manager who is equipped to take on a truly unique position like no other, you will lead from the front to generate a change in culture, systems, relationships, practice and ways of working together, whilst making a real difference to the lives of children, young people and families in Redcar and in due course reducing costs.

You will work on a secondment contract with Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council whilst being a NYCC employee working closely to progress and develop their NWD approach. Working closely together to adopt and adapt the model, the implementation will bring systemic change to working with the hardest to reach, engage and place adolescents and fundamentally challenge traditional methods of practice and theoretical thinking.

As the NWD Hub Manager you will provide on-the-ground support and drive change in finding solutions, building sustainable and meaningful relationships and manage the reduction of risk, whilst focussing on local placements with the clear objective of improving work with families and safely reducing the number of children entering care.
You will provide clear management, leadership and direction to the NWD Hub using evidence based models including Signs of Safety and Restorative Practice. In addition, you will develop and maintain multi-agency networks, ensuring NWD is kept at the forefront of strategic developments and partner’s priorities, at all levels.

You will be employed by North Yorkshire and equally represent Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council; a unique opportunity in itself.
