Social Care - Children Service
This is an exciting time in Redcar & Cleveland where we are pleased to be part of the No Wrong Door – Strengthening Families Protecting Children programme; a pioneering way of providing support to young people who are in our care, or on the edge of care.
No Wrong Door, devised by North Yorkshire County Council has already radically improved the life chances of troubled young people elsewhere, many of whom experienced long-term neglect and trauma throughout their childhoods and were likely to have needed to be taken into the care of the local authority without this intervention.
The success of No Wrong Door is built on a multi-agency approach to support. Each young person has a key worker who sticks with them through thick and thin, supporting them to access the right services at the right time and in the right place to meet their individual needs. It is a tough love approach for those who have had a lifetime of experiencing rejection and failure.
We are immensely proud that No Wrong Door is now coming to Redcar and Cleveland after our successful bid to the Department for Education to enable us to work with North Yorkshire to adopt the model locally. We are currently working towards a launch of the programme in August this year.
We are now recruiting to the position of Hub Portfolio Lead to proactively provide the support and interventions young people need so that they can achieve the best possible outcomes in life.
This pivotal role within our service is responsible for driving the action planning, interventions and case progress for young people through effective communication with a range of professionals working together to improve outcomes for young people.
You will work directly with young people as a keyworker, working as part of a 24/7 rota. In addition to this, you will support the management team to embed the NWD culture across the service, you will have a quality assurance and supervisory role of hub workers. You will bring together staff from across the hub and partner services to create the best support plan for young people.
Each Hub Portfolio Lead has a designated portfolio area within the hub’s Core Offer. There are six portfolio areas, which are:
1. High risk behaviours and risk management
2. Rebuilding relationships
3. Accommodation and life stage transitions
4. Education and training
5. Resilience, self-esteem and activities
6. Emotional and physical health and wellbeing
You will be based at the hub on the outskirts of Redcar, in a beautifully refurbished former care home that offers outstanding facilities for the multi-agency team who will be based there to support some of our most vulnerable young people.
