Gloucestershire County Council is offering an exciting opportunity to join our developing Family Group Conferencing Service. You may already be trained, or will receive training to deliver Family Group Conferences to families with vulnerable children.

You will be required to adhere to established standards and procedures in line with national guidance and best practice in order to improve outcomes for children and young people by enabling families to produce plans, addressing their children's needs.


You will represent the service effectively to other professionals and service users, working respectfully with all parties and communities to promote participation.


The children and families we work with have their own priorities, demands and commitments. Therefore you must be prepared to work flexibly, which will include some evenings and weekends.
