Symbol Family Support Services provides independent parenting assessments, on a residential and community basis, where one or both parents is vulnerable, for example as a result of learning disability, mental health issues or their own experience of being parented.

Our multidisciplinary assessment team is based at our residential family centre in Newington, near Sittingbourne, Kent. The centre has capacity for 10 families who usually spend between 6 and 12 weeks with us, whilst their current parenting skills and their potential to parent with appropriate intervention and support is explored.

We are looking for a HCPC registered social worker, experienced in working within child protection, to work within our senior, close knit, multidisciplinary assessment team, undertaking parenting assessments, producing court ready reports and acting as an expert witness.

This is an exciting chance for a flexible and motivated individual to work outside of the statutory sector.
