About the Service
The Targeted Response Team sits within the Early Help Service. Early Help works holistically with families and seeks to ensure that children, young people, families and communities are supported and empowered to find their own solutions to be better able to cope with future needs and challenging situations as they arise. These outcomes will be achieved by working collaboratively with organisations and communities across a range of settings.
The Targeted Response Team provides more intensive support to families, children and young people who are on the edge of care, youth crime, gang involvement, substance misuse and Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE). The team also includes specialist workers in domestic abuse, child/adult mental health and substance misuse.
We require an experienced, collaborative, individual with a proven ability to establish, oversee and quality assure Early Help services which deliver excellent outcomes for children, young people and families as well as the ability to establish and sustain partnership working relationships, implement new policies, practices and procedures and related change management activities. You will be responsible for the management of two Senior Practitioners.
