The Support Worker role
We are the recruitment team for an innovative award-winning independent provider of support services for people with learning disabilities and additional health and social care needs.

As part of a key-working team, you’ll work with the people we support to develop new daily living skills, to address behaviours that may challenge, make new friends, get involved in their community, support with their own personal care, go on holiday, or find themselves a new job. Liaising closely with their friends and family, as well as your team, you’ll make sure they are safe, happy, healthy and full of plans for the future.

Above all, you’ll be committed to providing person-centered care that gives real equality of opportunity to all those you’re working for.
