This is an exciting time to join our integrated community networks. We are seeking to appoint an energetic, enthusiastic full time permanent Social Worker within the West Integrated Community Network. The network consist of Social Workers, District Nurses and Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapist and Community Psychiatric Nurse working with third sector partner agencies to assess and support the needs of adults and physically disabled people affected by long term complex and adverse conditions as well as their carers and families.
Using a strength based outcome focused model of Social Work, the teams support disabled and vulnerable adults and their carers to achieve positive outcomes within their lives and encourage wider inclusion in local communities. Maximising an individual’s emotional wellbeing is seen as key in effective social work practice.
We are keen to continue to develop innovative approaches to social work practice. We work closely with GPs and other cluster partners and utilise the Contingency Care Model to prevent unnecessary admissions to hospital and care homes, as part of our role to maximise the independence and choice. The continued development of this dynamic service model will require work on widening partnership opportunities with statutory partners; the third sector and with individuals from the community.
We are particularly looking for someone who is interested in community work. We are keen to develop community groups and services in the Western area of Bridgend.
