We are also looking for a QSW in the 0-25 Learning Disabilities Team

As a 0 to 25 Disability service our client group are mainly children and young people and those young adults being supported through transition into adult support services and early adulthood. The service operates as one service of two teams; a 0 to 18 team and a transitions team for 14 to 25. There is cross over and so social workers have some mixed case work of both children and adults.
We are currently looking for an experienced social worker for the 0 to 18 team and so preferably someone with experience in working with children's legislation and processes but perhaps willing to engage with and learn about social work with young disabled adults. Knowledge and experience of working with disabled people is desirable but not essential as training and mentoring is available.
