The Family and Youth Resilience Service sits within AfC Early Help which includes targeted and statutory services alongside commissioned services.
The Youth Resilience Service remit is on vulnerable adolescents aged 13 to 18, where contextual safeguarding is prevalent.
Our ambition for the Adolescent Safeguarding Team is to be a truly integrated, multi-agency service to ensure there is one care plan and one lead professional without young people having to tell their story more than once, improving the journey of the child.
The Service will provide statutory services for adolescents assessed to be at risk from extra-familial harm and additional multi-agency interventions for children at risk of care and those assessed at high risk of harm, either to themselves and/or others.
The post holder will provide the operational management and leadership support across the service geographical areas supporting the Head of Family and Youth Resilience and other Heads of Service.
