Devon Children’s Services are on an exciting and ambitious journey of cultural change to embed restorative and relational ways of working. We believe that for the vast majority of families, the family home is the best place by far for children to live, with local, place-based support that includes help and support at the earliest opportunity from us and our partners. We believe that children and young people in Devon should have the best possible start in life and the opportunity to thrive. We know that working collaboratively with families is the most effective way to achieve good outcomes for children.
Restorative Devon is a Department for Education funded transformation programme to support Children Services in improving services for children and families through the power of restorative and relational practice. As part of this programme we are recruiting Restorative Coaches to work alongside practitioners and managers within a high support and high challenge framework. You will be a committed advocate of restorative and relational practice.
Ideally, we would like you to have expertise in relation to a specialist area of work such as neglect, domestic abuse, substance misuse or sexual harm to children. You will be an experienced leader and will be able to lead group reflective supervision that supports and improves practice. You will hold a relevant qualification in Children or Adult Social Work, or be from a similar relevant background such as Clinical Psychology, Family Therapy or Probation, and will receive excellent training and development as well.
