About Next Step Services (SW) Ltd

Next Step Services independent social workers have over 10 years combined experience working with children, young people and their families in residential and community settings.

Our Independent Social Workers have developed knowledge of children social work services and complex family issues subsequently that enables us to write sound reports.

We have experience in providing Human Rights reports in relation to immigration and repatriation cases, particularly around Right to Family Life, settlement in the UK and the impact of forced repatriation on children who have been in the UK for some considerable time.

Next Step Services works closely with a number of Local Authorities and provides high-quality services that are child centred. We provide support workers for hard to reach young people and can at times offer placement with some of our partner organisations.  It is imperative that each child is cared for in an environment that ensures respect, dignity, safety and security. We aim to work in a respectful way with children, their birth families, our carers and other professionals to produce positive and sustainable outcomes for young people.
