Leaders are committed to continuous improvement, invite feedback and engage in innovations to further enhance services.

There has been investment in the effective recruitment and development of staff, facilitating a more experienced and stable workforce that is very loyal to Leeds and highly motivated to provide the best service it can to children and families. Social work practice and leadership in Leeds is consistently good as a result.” OFSTED Dec 2018)

Restorative Early Support (RES) team manager (PO6)

As a Team Manager in RES, you will be able to lead on embedding the Leeds Practice Model underpinned by restorative practice, which is the bedrock of Leeds Children and Families Services ambition to universally recognise the utility of families themselves and the intrinsic value of highly collaborative approaches. The Leeds Practice Model encompasses Rethink Formulation, Leeds Practice Principles and Outcome Focused Supervision.

Restorative Early Support (RES) arrangements bring together social work and family support staff locally, with the aim of providing a more flexible, responsive, multi- disciplinary approach to working with families within their own communities. RES arrangements are already established in each of the high needs clusters in the city. Feedback from evaluation is promising – with very positive feedback from local schools and the cluster about how the teams are supporting improved relationships, practice and joint working, speeding up access to advice and support for families.

Our recent OFSTED inspection highlighted that:

“The early help support has been further enhanced by the introduction of the Restorative Early Support (RES) teams who work intensively with families, setting clear goals that are reviewed weekly. Utilising restorative principles, families ‘own’ the plan promoting sustainable change. The work seen in the RES teams demonstrated intensive intervention with families, who are maintaining change and preventing the escalation of concerns. These teams include social workers and support workers and provide an effective interface between the early help and   statutory services, either by preventing the escalation of concerns or by providing longer-term support to families that no longer need a statutory intervention.” (OFSTED Dec 2018)

For further information or an informal discussion please contact : Janine Craven, Service Delivery Manager on 0113 3785371

Closing date for applications 13th February 2019

The Duty and Advice social work team is a key part of the Front Door arrangements. There are 4 team managers and 1 child Exploitation manager who work together to ensure that all contacts to the service are screened effectively with timely decision making, involvement in the Daily Domestic Violence Meeting to manage risk and provide support, close working with Early Help and statutory partners across the city. We also have adopted a “No Threshold approach” which has ensured that the right conversations are held with the right people at the right time. OFSTED in our recent inspection noted:

“Leeds local authority have well-established multi-agency arrangements at the ‘front door’. These have replaced the traditional model of thresholds and rely on professionals having the ‘right conversation at the right time’ to enable families to access services that meet their needs. This approach is well understood across the multi-agency partnership and professionals know when to refer matters to children’s social work services(CSWS). “

“An efficient system in the multi-agency front door enables contacts to be signposted to the right service at the earliest opportunity, proportionate to the level of presented needs. The workers in the ‘front door’ share information well to ensure that decisions are informed and there is clear management oversight of this process. A   weekly referrals meeting chaired by the head of the service facilitates further scrutiny and challenge of the referrals progressed in order to ensure that decisions are appropriate.”(OFSTED Dec 2018)
