North Central London Transforming Care Partnership is excited to be setting up a new pilot service to support families who are part of the Transforming Care cohort. The Transforming Care Prevention and Support Service will operate across two patches; Islington, Haringey and Camden, and Barnet and Enfield.
This advert is for the service which will operate across Islington, Haringey and Camden, and will be based within the Disabled Children’s Family Support Team in Islington.
This new service aims to support families before they reach crisis point, in a personalised way to help them develop resilience and better cope with the complexities of looking after a disabled child with behavioural challenges and, frequently, a range of other difficulties. The aim is keep children and young people in the community, and avoid admission to Tier 4 hospital placements and 52-week residential placements.
You will manage a team of 3 Key Workers, who will provide direct support to children with complex disabilities and their families in a range of settings: in their homes, in the community, and in liaison with their short breaks setting, their school and mental health services. Having identified with the family the most important areas where they would benefit from additional support, they will work with them intensively to enable positive change and achieve the agreed target outcomes.
You will provide case management oversight and co-ordination of TCaPS Service, and supervision for the 3 Key Workers. You will liaise with partners across Islington, Camden and Haringey to deliver joined-up working across the boroughs.
You will need to work alongside commissioners from the 3 boroughs to provide update reports, data and feedback; this is a pilot project, and as such there will be a need to be flexible and responsive, in order to deliver the outcomes for families.
The ideal candidate will have a background in health, education and/or social care, working closely with families with complex needs. Key strengths of Team Manager will be flexibility, a focus on outcomes, a willingness to try new approaches and be inclusive. This service puts the family at the heart of the service and will work alongside other teams and professionals to ensure a joined-up approach.
This role is a part-time role (0.5 FTE) and is fixed term for 12 months.
