Who we are

Newham Adult Social Care works with anyone aged 18 years old or over who has care and/or support needs. We support adults living in Newham in a range of areas from advice, guidance and frontline assessments.

We make the best use of available resources to enable adults to live in the community independently and live safely, free from abuse and neglect. 

Why you should work for us 

 Newham Council is a great place to work with a lot to offer, including:

We celebrate our diversity as one of our greatest strengths and are committed to ensuring that the Council’s approach is inclusive and reflects the diversity of those that we serve.

The borough is undergoing considerable transformation and regeneration with developments and building works underway.  The Local Plan sets out a vision and framework for development in the borough. It addresses needs and opportunities across a number of themes, including housing, the economy, community facilitates, infrastructure, and the environment.  

Along with partners, we have also launched our health and wellbeing strategy, 50 steps to a healthier Newham. We believe that by working together we can make a real difference to our residents and the borough as a whole.  

Our TRID Programme

Our Tackling Racism, Inequality & Disproportionality programme has four pillars – each with its own pledges to the people who live and work in Newham:

  • Newham as an Employer

Pledge One: To improve workforce diversity and delivery, we will do everything we can to ensure that in all recruitment there is a Black, Asian or minority ethnic candidate suitable to be shortlisted

Pledge Two: To ensure people are fairly rewarded for their work and have the opportunity to develop, we’ll tackle any evidenced ethnicity pay-gap at Newham Council and do more to promote Black, Asian or minority ethnic talent to senior levels

Pledge Three: To have a representative and inclusive workforce, we will enable our staff to live our values – Honesty, Equality, Ambition, Respect, Together – and take action to protect them against unconscious bias
