About Us:

At Bristol City Council, we've redefined our approach to children's residential care. We've transitioned to smaller homes, with a focus on providing personalised care for 2 to 3 children at a time. This enables us to better match placements and offer a homely environment where children feel safe, loved, and nurtured. Our trauma-informed approach ensures that we understand and cater to the individual needs of each child, empowering them to thrive.

Who We're Looking For:

We're seeking individuals who share our passion for working with children who have faced challenges early in life. If you embody our Bristol Values of Respect, Collaboration, Curiosity, Ownership, and Dedication, we want to hear from you. Our ideal candidates are positive, reflective, resilient, and non-punitive, committed to upholding principles from PACE in their caregiving.
