Adolescent Service

​The Adolescent Service will provide holistic packages of support around family breakdown and teenage homelessness; teenagers at risk of coming into care; community-based risks including criminal and sexual exploitation, and will also support young people with substance misuse and mental health difficulties and those who are permanently excluded from school.

The service is currently recruiting to a range of roles and is looking for people passionate about working with teenagers, who are up for a challenge and willing to contribute creatively to the development of the service.

Utilising a relationship-based approach, where the young person is at the heart of everything we do, the service will undertake assessments, both statutory and non-statutory, and will focus on intensive, direct work to meet complex needs and manage associated risks. Some packages of support will be led by social workers, others by lead professionals from across the service, including from CFN’s partners. The service wants good outcomes for young people and for them to be safe; adequately housed and supported (with their families wherever possible); physically and emotionally healthy and achieving good outcomes through education, training or employment.

What does the job involve?

To deliver and provide social work services, at a level appropriate for a professionally qualified post, to young people and families to ensure the welfare of children and young people is safeguarded and they are protected in accordance with the legal and statutory obligations of Northamptonshire County Council.
