Newcastle is a great City, one that never stands still. We are a cosmopolitan city and our children and families reflect the diversity and vibrancy of our city. Despite the global challenges 2020 brought to us all, we have bold and exciting plans to improve our work with, and outcomes for, children, families and communities.

Building on our recent successes and supported through £3.1m funding from DfE’s Strengthening Families Protecting Children Programme (SFPC), we are adopting a relational approach to working with children and families. This is a whole system change across services for children, young people and families, whereby practitioners, teams and wider partnerships’ practice is shaped and informed by shared restorative language, culture, behaviours and ways of working.

If you are committed to working with children, young people and families and believe that doing so is at the heart of excellent services then we would like to hear from you.

To support our ambitious plans, we have an exciting opportunity for a Team Manager for our new Family Group Conference service to work with families to find solutions and make plans to keep children safely at home.
