A new chapter is unfolding in Social Care in Warrington

This is an exciting time for Warrington as we are embarking on an ambitious programme redesigning our frontline services for children and families. We have a strong vision for social work practice in Warrington and are developing a new approach to social work. We are developing a relationship based practice model that has systemic practice at its core.

You can find out more about our practice model and our wider approach [pdf] 

In Warrington we want all children and families to benefit from high quality and purposeful relationships with professionals. We believe this will help create the best opportunities for people to change and reach their full potential. We also believe one of the most effective way to improve the outcomes for children and families is through providing our social workers with the best conditions in which they can thrive.

Alongside redesigning our social work teams we have placed a strong emphasis on our workforce development strategy. We are working alongside the Centre for Systemic Social Work, who are providing a comprehensive training programme to social workers and managers across our teams, and supporting our senior leadership team to embed systemic based practice across our services.

Our commitment to our staff includes:

  • A workforce development strategy focused on continually developing our practitioners - equipping social workers and managers with the skills and tools they need to do their job confidently and effectively.
  • Excellent line management support and the provision of high quality reflective supervisions, from managers trained in using systemic techniques.
  • Manageable caseloads and a commitment to promoting a good work life balance.
  • A structured and supportive ASYE programme, designed to support, motivate and develop newly qualified social work workers as they embark on their social work career.   
  • A culture in which you will be encouraged to learn, develop and reflect.
