Our Teams

“Corporate decision-making prioritises vulnerable children, with investments, partnerships and innovations in services all having a positive impact on children and their families. “ – Ofsted report, 2018

Peterborough is a great place to build your career as a social worker, with excellent quality of life on your doorstep.

Peterborough’s social care team is close knit and friendly; you will work face-to-face every day with your social worker colleagues. In 2018, the social care team moved to a brand new purpose built building designed for agile working, allowing social workers to easily interact with other members of the team as and when they need to.

Since 2017 our Children’s service teams have adopted the innovative multi-disciplinary Family Safeguarding Model. The model brings together a blend of children’s social workers and adult professionals to provide a more holistic and efficient method of care, which gives social workers more control.

Children’s services social workers play a vital role in our dynamic and culturally diverse city. Peterborough’s rapid growth is creating significant challenges within our inner city environment. The percentage of children living in poverty in Peterborough is considerably higher than the national average. The population is changing too, with immigration at high levels and more than 120 languages now spoken within the city.

Whilst Peterborough has a great deal to offer the average resident, day-to-day life for some of its people can be a real challenge. Demand for intervention from social care is high and in Children’s Services our Assessment teams field around 840 enquiries per month.

Because of the challenges at hand, our social workers are given competitive salaries and an excellent benefits package. We work hard to support these important teams and pride ourselves on the collaborative environment within the Council.
