About the Role

At Dimensions (an award-winning, life-changing, not-for-profit charity), we're looking to recruit compassionate, courageous and ambitious people who have a genuine interest in - and a passion for - supporting others to work flexibly with us across a variety of shifts (including sleep-ins) in Headington. Here, you'll be helping us to support and empower three people; a gentleman in their early 20s who attends college and two ladies in their 60s, one of whom is bedbound. 

What You'll Do as a Dimensions Support Worker

  • Provide intimate personal care, prompting and mobility assistance when required (some of those we support use wheelchairs when out of the house)
  • Be involved with every aspect of their daily lives, i.e., supporting them with shopping, their hobbies and housework (including cleaning and laundry), etc. 
  • Administer medication and PEG tubes
