They support service users living in a range of settings, e.g. in residential/Supported Living placements and those living within the community with their families. Social Workers in the team are involved in undertaking Assessments, Reviews and Care Planning and need to have the enthusiasm to play an active role in delivering a high quality service to our service users.

You would be expected to work within the legislative framework (e.g. Social Services and Wellbeing (Wales) Act 2014, Mental Capacity Act 2015) along with demonstrating an understanding of risk management and how to work in a strength-based, outcome focused way.

Regular professional supervision is provided and you will also have opportunity to become involved in peer group supervision.
