What does a Support Worker do?

The role of a Support Worker is to ensure the people we work with are safe, happy and lead fulfilling lives.

A Support Worker could be taking the lady supported on long walks, to bingo or quizzes, listening to music or even supporting her love of trains. It could even involve helping with preparing meals, prompting with personal care or even helping to wash her hair.
