We have over 30 years’ experience in training and developing therapeutic foster parents and making an extraordinary difference to the lives of children in care.
The founder members recognised that looked after children – especially those who’d had very difficult starts in life – needed specialist support. So right from the beginning they put the child at the centre of their thinking and surrounded them with an integrated range of support services. In fact, that's what ISP means: Integrated Service Programme.
What we are looking for
ISP is a well-established, innovative, independent fostering provider. ISP takes a therapeutic approach to working with children and is committed to promoting positive outcomes for the children and young people in placement.
ISP Caterham is currently seeking a qualified Social Worker who is enthusiastic, committed and who has an appreciation of Foster Carers’ skills and their role. We ask our Social Workers to take a collaborative approach with Foster Carers in order to promote meaningful and relevant supervision of the placement. Experience of working with Foster Carers as professional colleagues and working within a multi-discipline arena is essential, as is holding a full driving licence and having unrestricted access to your own car.
This is a demanding position which includes both a quality assurance role to maintain high standards and a training role to prospective and current carers. You will be an excellent report writer and able to work to strict deadlines.
For an informal discussion please contact Jo Savage on 07393 233 877.
Due to recent COVID-19 developments please note that all interviews at this time will be arranged virtually and all successful appointments will be managed pragmatically in line with business and individual needs.
