This is an exciting opportunity to work within Children’s Early Help as a Family Practitioner.

Early Help encompasses the work of a broad range of partners supporting families and individuals during often challenging and difficult times. Much of this work is undertaken in partnership with others. The development of universal Early Help Hubs across Norfolk has helped partners to gain a greater understanding of each other’s work and to develop networks and collaboration for the benefit of the residents of Norfolk.

Family Focus is the targeted end of early help – for services operating at the edge of more intensive and or statutory services. Our practitioners provide support to families that have the most complex needs, where without targeted support, their situation will escalate to become acute, chronic and costly to the child / young person and their family requiring social care or other statutory intervention.

We are looking for enthusiastic people to work in the early help teams (various localities) and develop new ways of working with families which focus on lasting change.

There is a strong emphasis on partnership working across all agencies, and Family Practitioners undertake direct work with families in the community to bring about long lasting social change.

You will undertake direct work with children and their families, working within statutory legislation and delivering interventions prioritised by the line manager. You will be accountable for achieving required team performance targets (particularly Step Up / Step Down & DCLG Troubled Families payment by results targets).

We welcome applications from individuals currently working in other organisations, however priority consideration for this post may be given to current employees who are affected by restructure within the organisation or are in a redeployment position.
