Are you wanting to be an intrinsic part of transforming the lives of two rather amazing young ladies, who are about to move into their first home together, in Calne?

In just three weeks, the next stage of their lives will be beginning. Join them, and their already trusted support team, as they unpack their boxes, set up their furniture, decorate their rooms and thrive as two independent ladies. 

Both Ladies are real girly girls! Nails, clothes, hair – you name it, they love it! 

‘C’ is delighted by theatre trips and Disney films. She is also partial to meals out and afternoons spent in a sunny garden. Very close to her family, she will be keen for you to support her to prepare meals for them, to celebrate moving into her new home. 

‘C’ has Downs Syndrome and can be electively mute until you gain her trust and friendship – but when you do - WOW! - there will be no stopping the adventures you can go on together!

Joining ‘C’, is ‘S’, a chatty, tech savvy young lady who loves social media & computer gaming, bowling and dancing.  ‘S’ has so much ambition for herself and is currently job hunting - she is looking for support workers who will work alongside her, boosting her confidence, to secure a job where she will feel valued and inspired. 

‘S’ is autistic, and can be anxious at times. She will look to you for security, assurance and courage as she chases her dreams.

Every day will be different, and rewarding, as you encourage and empower both ‘C’ and ‘S’ to be actively engaged in every aspect of their daily lives – this will include accompanying to favoured activities, supporting with daily living skills, administering medication and supporting with personal care when needed.

At Dimensions, we believe it is who you are as a person – and the difference you can bring to lives of the people you will be supporting – that is more important than experience. Whether you are new to support work, or have supported people previously, we want to hear from you!   We will give you all the training you need to be become an amazing support worker for the people you will be working with.   You will find no other role more personally fulfilling, and professionally rewarding, than becoming a Support Worker with Dimensions.
