Creative Support is a non-profit organisation which provides high quality person-centred social care services for people with learning disabilities, mental health and other needs.

We have an exciting opportunity available for an Activity Support Worker to initiate, plan and provide enjoyable and stimulating group and one to one activities based on the identified needs, interests and preferences of older people living in our Extra Care Service in Wandsworth. You will facilitate social inclusion and community links to promote physical and mental wellbeing, confidence and independence.

You will have good written and verbal communication skills and the ability to facilitate and work with people in groups. Experience of working with people with dementia, a learning disability, people with mental health needs, autism and people with physical disabilities would be an advantage.

We are looking for enthusiastic, resourceful and energetic individuals who are well motivated, hardworking and keen to join our friendly team. You will demonstrate the values that are essential for a role of this nature such as warmth, compassion and unconditional positive regard along with the ability to work flexibly (this may include evenings and weekends).
