Fostering Supervising Social Worker
Full Time 37 hours
Full time permanent Fostering Supervising Social Worker with a lead role for the supervision and support of the Mockingbird Family Model (MFM).
The Mockingbird programme delivers the Mockingbird Family Model. This centers on a constellation where one foster home acts as a hub, offering planned and emergency sleepovers and short breaks, advice, training and support, to six to 10 satellite households.
The model was originally developed by The Mockingbird Society in America in 2004.
Relationships are central to the programme and the hub home builds strong relationships with all those in the constellation, empowering families to support each other and overcome problems before they escalate or lead to placement breakdown and increasing protective factors around children.
The constellation also builds links with other families important to the children’s care plans and to resources in the wider community which can provide them with enhanced opportunities to learn, develop and succeed
The successful applicant’s appointment will be subject to satisfactory pre-employment clearances including a Disclosure and Barring Service check.
