Stockton-on-Tees Learning Disability Service has an opportunity for two Social Workers to join the team, working with adults who have a learning disability and their carers within the principles of Valuing People and Putting People First.

The team is located in Wessex house, Preston Business Park, Stockton-on-Tees and works within a wider co-located team which has a supportive multi-disciplinary environment.

We are committed to promoting independence, choice and control and promoting Self Directed Support where people are eligible for social care services.
