Welcome to Bath and North East Somerset Children’s Social Care

We believe that improved life chances and safety should be central to all the decisions we make on behalf of children and young people.   Our decisions are informed by listening to all those involved in the life of a young person including the young people themselves, parents  and other professionals.

We are committed to do the right thing for families, we aim to provide the right level of support at the right time and work closely with our colleagues in ‘Early Help’ services. However if children and young people are not safe we provide holistic assessments and evidence based interventions to reduce risk and minimise family distress. When a decision is taken that children are not safe we will ensure there is a prompt and robust approach to both our child protection process and where necessary progressing to court with a clear view about permanency planning.

Our values are at the heart of everything we do and we want people to join us who can really commit to what we believe and what we want to achieve for our young people.

If you are looking for a career in social work then there are some things we can guarantee –

“Social work is never boring” “You will be able to change someone’s life for the better”
“You will learn things about yourself that you never knew you were capable of”  “There are few careers that can offer you as many challenges or as much diversity”
