Start your day knowing you'll make a difference - join our team of Support Workers and create a positive difference that improves the life for the people we support.

We are looking for full time and part time Female Support Workers to support two lovely ladies in the Southbourne area of Bournemouth. Both ladies are wheelchair users and have high complex needs. The ladies have their own mobility vehicles so being a driver would be an advantage. The ladies like going out and about feeling part of the community. We would require a sleep in once a week. Experience with supporting people with learning disabilities is preferred, but not essential as we do provide full training.

"Gender is considered to be a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010."

The Dimensions approach to support

Our unique “Activate” approach puts decision making closer to the people we support. It sets personalised and challenging goals with them, their families and you, their Support Worker - by teaching new skills and enabling people to try new experiences.

Research has proven that this progressive model is the best way to deliver measurable improvements in the quality of life for people - and you and your colleagues in their support teams. It achieves an increase in active support and meaningful activity for people, a reduction in challenging behaviour - and an increase in your own satisfaction, with over 60% of Support Workers reporting that the 'Activate’ model has increased the quality of their working life.

Simply put, our ‘Activate’ approach offers you a better working life, with the satisfaction that you’ve changed someone’s life for the better, in a role where you can be the best that you can be.
