Birmingham Children’s Trust continues to go from strength to strength. We are the largest provider of family support and social care services for children, young people and families in the country. Our goal is to become a centre of excellence in both social work and family support.
Working in the Trust gives you the opportunity to acquire a diverse set of professional experiences and exceptional professional development. You will have a manageable caseload, which is underpinned by strong and secure management and key professional networks.
Our size means it is possible to build your entire social work career in the Trust, experiencing every aspect of social work, thus allowing you to progress in your social work practice and in management.
Join us and you will be able to ‘do the job you came into social work to do’. We are an independent organisation, which enables us to focus, single-mindedly on the safety and welfare of children and young people across the city. As well as focusing on you too.
You will work within our relationship-based, trauma informed family-led practice model. We will look to you to analyse the information presented to make informed decisions. You will complete all assessments in line with statutory requirements, as well as implementing, monitoring and reviewing children’s wellbeing within multi-agency meetings.
Our services will always be joined-up and you will develop robust partnerships with other teams and outside agencies; to include the police, health, schools and voluntary organisations.

Our vision is to build a Trust that provides excellent social work and family support for and with the city’s most vulnerable children, young people and families.

Where identified, subsistence and/or accommodation through section 17 of the Children’s Act 1989 will be arranged following an assessment.
You will be able to build effective relationships, carry out assessments, be confident in partnership working with children, families and professionals, enabling their full participation in assessment, planning, review and decision making.
You will work closely with your colleagues in the ASTI & Safeguarding Teams and the transfer of work with families as appropriate.
