Family Safeguarding Job Opportunities

This is an exciting and brand new opportunity for a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and two Senior Clinical Psychologists to work within Lancashire & South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust and Lancashire County Council as part of the new Family Safeguarding Team.

There are also positions available for Mental Health Practitioners, for which applicants must hold a recognised Core Mental Health Professional Qualification (e.g. RMN, SW, OT).

The Family Safeguarding Team aims to keep the highest risk children and families in Lancashire together safely, improve health and educational outcomes for the children and reduce physical and emotional harm in families. The teams are multi-disciplinary and co-located within Children's Social Care and are made up of social care practitioners and adult specialists to work with parents in relation to domestic abuse, mental health and substance misuse.

The multi-disciplinary teams will work together to support families to stay together where it is safe to do so. While incorporating a range of therapeutic approaches, teams have a focus on a motivational interviewing approach to support families and empower and engage parents to make the positive changes needed to achieve improved outcomes.
