Here in Greenwich Children’s Services, we promote a learning and skill sharing environment where our work is not only informed by legislation, but by experience, theory, good practice, evidence and innovation which leads to purposeful actions with defined impact.

In 2017 we were awarded £1.95m by the DfE to implement SafeCORE - a whole family approach to address the ‘stop/start response’ by children’s social care to domestic violence and abuse.  Our innovative model, in place since February 2018, applies the Science of Compassion to a child and family context and combines it with family led systemic concepts, relational approaches and practical support in order to engage families to address the causal factors of Domestic Violence and Abuse (specifically situational couple violence).

SafeCORE is made up of small units that bring multi-disciplinary skillsets together.  Each unit consists of a Practice Lead, a Social Worker, an Adult Practitioner, a Family Support Worker and a Clinical Psychologist / Psychotherapist who work with the whole family. Each unit is supported by a SafeCORE Co-ordinator who provides comprehensive administrative support allowing practitioners to spend more time doing direct work with families.

The work of SafeCORE aims to support families to create better environments for their children and mitigate against them re-entering the Children’s Social Care system at a later stage with more severe needs.

Join us!

We are now expanding SafeCORE and looking for dynamic, competent, confident, compassionate, motivated and creative staff who want join us to deliver and develop the SafeCORE model.  

Practice Leads (internal secondment / f ixed term only) – This is a unique opportunity for experienced social workers who want to develop their management skills while remaining ‘hands-on’ with families, children and young people
