The county council has announced that it has saved£6m this year from more efficient delivery and by cutting bureaucracy, freeing up£3.8m for investment in front-line social services.
The recruitment will be discussed at a meeting of the council’s cabinet next month.
Suffolk said the investment mean that it can recruit around 50 social workers as well as 25 family support workers.
A statement by the council said: “This will ensure that the council can continue to improve outcomes for vulnerable children by providing good quality services.
"Not only will this help protect children at the high end of need, it will also help connect children and families and social care services with other community resources to help children and families, such as Children’s Centres, Schools, and youth services.
"This will aid our effort to identify problems early on and prevent them becoming more severe.”
