Adult Support Coordinator, Scott House, Huntingdon
The Young Adults Team is developing an exciting new way of working which will see Social Workers and Adult Support Co-ordinators working in a highly supportive environment, being led by an increased number of Senior Social workers, alongside the Team Manager, who can share their wealth of experience and knowledge to support ongoing professional development for team members.
The team continues to expand in response to demand and this enables workers to benefit from carefully managed caseloads which reflect their experience and skill set. There continues to be a raft of opportunities for joint working with a range of other departments and provider services, which means that no two days are ever the same. There is always something new to learn!
As a result of this a new opportunity has arisen for an additional full-time Adult Support Co-ordinator post in the Young Adult’s Team, for 37 hours a week.
The Young Adults Team is a countywide team based at Scott House Huntingdon. As well as offering a degree of remote working, the Young Adults Team are fortunate to have an office based in the incredible town of Huntingdon with easy access to local shops, restaurants and community facilities. The Young Adults Team support Adults 18-25yrs with a diagnosed learning disability who have an EHC Plan.
We are looking for a dynamic, committed and passionate individual who is dedicated to improving the lives of young people, working alongside other professional colleagues to promote the principles of personalisation, encouraging independence, choice and opportunities for young people.
There is some part of the role which involves working alongside Children’s services with young people under 18 years to prepare them and their families for adulthood. Candidates will have the ability to support young adults through change, encouraging progression, and acknowledging individual, family and community strengths through a transforming lives approach. The role also includes working alongside Adult Learning Disability services, particularly health colleagues, as well as working closely with Education services.
Knowledge and experience of working with people with a learning disability is desirable but not essential. Working knowledge and experience of the Care Act, Mental Capacity Act and CCC Adult Social Care policies and procedures will also be an advantage.
We are a fun, friendly and supportive team who work together in a unique way to improve the lives of the young people we support.
We are proud to serve the diverse communities of Cambridgeshire and want our workforce to reflect this diversity, which we believe is beneficial for our employees, the organisation and the communities we serve.
