Reaching for Independence Team – Invest to Save Success.
The Reaching for Independence service has been successful in securing funding from the DCC’s Invest to save fund, this initiative will increase the capacity within RFI to undertake strengths based reviews. A Social Worker or Social Care Assessor will be integrated within each of the seven RFI Teams across the County, they will be led by a Team Manager. Reaching for Independence has a very solid foundation in delivering positive life changing outcomes for people and the awareness and respect across teams for the service continues to grow.
The successful candidates will be allocated overdue reviews from ASC, AST and CDP waiting lists where a strengths based approach can lead to greater levels of independence for people living with disabilities and long term support packages. They will work in conjunction with Reaching for independence staff to review outcomes, identify and support people to achieve their goals which lead to increased self-support including the use of technologies which enable autonomy. All these permanent posts will be advertised in Devon Jobs, watch out for this great opportunity to work within RFI to develop strengths based review practice.
