The Family Support Worker will work as part of the Child and Family Service to provide intensive one to one supports and group-based supports to families. They may work either in LSSC premises in Henry Street, in the Southside Child and Family Centre or across both services.
The Community Social Work and Family Support Service is a part of LSSC’s Child and Family Service. This service consists of professionally qualified social workers and family support workers who work to support families to build stronger relationships, develop their parenting and communication skills and address a range of challenges that families may be facing. This work is completed through home visits, centre-based work and phone contact. Targeted group interventions and workshops are also facilitated.
The Senior Community Social Work Practitioner will provide line management, support and supervision to the Community Social Work and Family Support Team and students on placement as well as managing a caseload.
The Senior Community Social Work Practitioner serves as LSSC’s Designated Liaison Person, and, in this role, they provide support across the organisation to ensure that every staff member understands their role under Children First and that we work together as an organisation to ensure the safety of children.
A wonderful Day had by all, at the new Child & Family Center. Mr Ryan accompanied by 50 children & 5 teachers from Our Lady Queen Of Peace School entertained 67 Southill Seniors by singing, acting, playing trombone, drums & violin 's. They also served wonderful food to each table. The children's kindness was overwhelming when each child gifted the Seniors with a Christmas present. This event was co-ordinated by Mary O'Hehir LSSC
