Adoption East Midlands launched in 2019 as a collaborative venture between Derby, Derbyshire, Nottingham and Nottinghamshire councils to provide a regional adoption service. Adoption East Midlands provides all aspects of adoption recruitment, assessment, family finding, and the coordination of adoption support services. We are a successful child-focused service, making a real difference to the lives of children and adoptive families.

Adoption Support Social Worker
We are also seeking a suitably qualified and experienced Social Work England registered Social Worker to join our dynamic, established team of social workers within the Adoption Support Service based across Adoption East Midlands. Our Adoption Support Service aims to engage proactively with members of the adoption community to ensure we meet the needs of those accessing our services. As a worker you will be instrumental in supporting families and where needed, carrying out holistic assessments in discussion with professionals to identify their needs to determine the most appropriate plan of support, alongside holding cases where direct pieces of work are carried out with children/adoptive parents. Alongside these support needs, you would also be involved in developing and supporting our programme of universal services which include information and resource sharing, co-delivering peer support opportunities and learning events.
It’s an exciting time to join the team, as we’re always striving to develop our service and recently this includes the establishment of our multi-disciplinary team. To find out more about the role and submit an application visit the Nottinghamshire County Council Vacancies Page.
