No culture or family is perfect – it's always changing, developing and looking at the best ways it can work together but there's a few things that we do to help influence that.
We aim to ensure our team, skills, systems, structures, style of working and shared values align to our vision and priorities. Our values are at the heart of everything, so we try work in ways that are supportive, innovative, respectful and collaborative.
We have realistic caseloads for all practitioners taking account of their level of experience and the complexity of their work with managers demonstrating respectful challenge and professional curiosity.
We understand that people want to progress, so career and personal development is promoted, protected and proactively available when you are. We celebrate success, empower our teams and respect opinions even when they differ from our own.
Lancashire County Council has a Vision – we want to make "children, young people and their families safe, healthy and achieve their full potential" and we're looking at recruiting some amazing people to help us do this…
Good social work & supporting families changes lives – FACT.

Come join one of our virtual Recruitment Open Day's – it's dynamic & interactive, you'll hear from various members of our team including our Heads of Service and/or Principal Social Worker plus you'll get to ask questions, gather more information and see what it's like plus understand why we would love to welcome people just like you.
