Are you passionate about supporting adults with Learning Disabilities and Autism? 

 

The Community Team for people with a Learning Disability and Autism is committed to improving outcomes for the people we support. We adopt a person-centred approach to the work undertaken by the Team. We are looking for individuals who will share our commitment and who are organised, Creative, and skilled in communicating with Adults with Learning Disabilities and Autism. 

Because we’re Bracknell Forest Council… 

 

Below are a few recent quotes from the people we support and their families showing how we value people with a Learning Disability and Autism and the staff who work with them;  

 

“I think the support you have offered this family has made the lives of all involved so much better.  We truly believe if it had not been for you we would have honestly not been a family anymore as we would all have been broken with some major consequences. Just want to say THANK YOU!  Your continued support means the world” 

“I just wanted to thank you for the help and support you are giving me. The help you are giving me has made a tremendous difference and allowed me to have hope during stressful and frightening situations. It has made such a difference” 

“My Social worker was very kind and friendly, she had a very nice manner and ‘way about her’ and was very helpful”.  

 

The CTPLD/CTASD is a great team to work in with a shared ethos, mutually supportive and a positive team dynamic. We work with others across the service to draw on specialist knowledge and support. 

 

Located in the South East, Bracknell Forest is a small and friendly unitary authority in Berkshire, just 28 miles west of London, close to Reading and mid-way between the M3 and M4 corridors. It is a diverse area incorporating the best features of town and attractive countryside. Our staff are our greatest asset and you will receive regular supervision; have access to excellent training opportunities and the ability to develop your professional skills and interests.

The post involves assessment, support planning and review, direct work with people who have a Learning Disability and or Autism as well as general case management duties. As a Senior Social Worker you will also be responsible for supervising team members and have the opportunity to be involved in various projects. As a valued member of the team you will also form part of the management team for CTPLD/ASD. 

 

You will be provided with a laptop and a mobile phone to enable remote working. 

 

The benefits you will experience are:

  • Regular opportunities for development with internal and external training courses.
