Partnership Working and Support

In the words of our social workers . . .

Social worker and girl by riverThere is very good multi-agency working, and you can see the results of how different agencies work well together."

- Kathryn

You're part of a bigger team. You're working with people from the health authority and other agencies; it's multi-agency."

- Steve

What I really enjoy is that every case we get is different; it is so varied, liaising with so many different teams and agencies. One of the benefits of doing my traineeship was that I spent time with a lot of different teams, which has enabled me to build up a good network of contacts."

Support

 

In the words of our social workers . . .

I have a good relationship with peers, colleagues, and managers and have found them to be very supportive."

- George

We have a very good team - a fantastic team - and very good supportive managers. If someone is struggling, we help each other out. Pembrokeshire also has an open door policy with managers, which is very important in a job like ours."

- Kathryn

We have a very stable and committed team and support from managers has been really good."

- Luke

I have been very lucky that I've had opportunity from Pembrokeshire County Council; I've found them to be really supportive and I couldn't have achieved what I have without encouragement from colleagues and management."

- Paul

The team are a really supportive bunch. Coming in as a social work assistant, when you don't have that much experience, there's a good management structure and colleagues are really supportive."

- Steve

My team is lovely! One of the challenges I have had is that I have had to supervise support workers, so something that I've had to learn. However I have been fully supported with this. As a newly qualified social worker I feel that I have had excellent support and supervision allowing me to develop as a professional. The whole of the Council has been really supportive through my whole time with them."
