Are you a Support Worker with a passion for making a difference? If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!

Who Will I Be Supporting?

We support two gentlemen and three ladies in their 50s-60s who love:

  • Hydrotherapy and Swimming
  • Sensory sessions and Music activities
  • Going to the theatre, cinema, and arts and crafts sessions
  • Day trips along the rivers and being out and about

They have learning disabilities and autism and live together in their shared home, but some still have close relationships with their families who may often visit. Motivated support workers who enjoy working as part of a team and have a good sense of humour would be a wonderful match.

What Will You Be Doing?

  • Empowering Independence: Supporting people to live their lives how they choose and achieve their goals.
  • Daily Living Support: Attending professional appointments, providing personal care, meal support, going shopping, cooking, cleaning, and laundry.
