Swansea Council are looking for a Fostering Social Worker, pay rate is dependent on experience.

Our vision in Swansea which is well understood by the current workforce, is 'doing what matters to make things better for children, young people and families.  This is reflected in our drive that wherever safe children should remain in the care of their birth families. Signs of Safety is our practice framework and our social work teams work in small pods which allows us to work systemically with families to effect change. This supports good supervision and collaboration between staff. Building positive respectful relationships with families, listening to children and ensuring they are involved in decisions that affect their lives is at the heart of what we do.

Our recent CIW assurance visit in June 2021 highlighted the following: - 

  • A positive attitude towards risk and a willingness to experiment, innovate and be creative was evident.

  • Providers reported Swansea Council has taken a lead in influencing partners to adopt a more strength based/appreciative enquiry approach to communicating with people.

  • Practice was respectful and we saw genuine efforts made by staff to understand people's circumstances and explore how best to work together in supporting people to meet their own personal outcomes.

  • Feedback from staff via focus groups and survey results confirmed they felt appropriately supported throughout the pandemic.

  • Swansea Council's robust and proactive approach to reviewing, and where appropriate, reducing the number of children looked after has continued to pay dividends during the pandemic. The number of children placed outside Wales has also been recently reduced. Most of the care experienced young people we spoke with were positive about their overall experience and levels of support.
