About us

Our philosophy is to put excellent social work at the heart of everything we do and our team of dedicated and professional social workers are key to making this a reality by delivering excellent person-centred care and support to adults and their families and carers within Brighton & Hove. We believe our staff are our greatest asset which is why we will give you the time to support you in your day-to-day practice including:

  • regular monthly 1-2-1 supervision meetings
  • bi-annual appraisals and
  • support from experienced lead practitioners and 
  • research opportunities.

We will also encourage you to further develop your professional practice so you can become the best you can be.  We are particularly proud of our unique learning and development pathway (the CLAM PDF 1585 KB) and the opportunities we provide for our staff to participate in innovative projects with our local Universities. We are also a proud partner of the South Coast Regional Centre for Social Work Education and through our membership of RiPfA, you will always be up-to-date with the latest research and new practice.

So, if you are a qualified social worker registered with the HCPC who would thrive in an environment committed to professional excellence and which places social work at the forefront of new and developing models of care, then why not join us. This is a particularly exciting time to do so as we begin to work more closely with Health and our other partners to shape and deliver a more integrated health and social care service across the City.
