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. They provide consistent and flexible approaches to the people we support and are always striving for positive outcomes.

Supporting someone with a learning disability isn’t just personal care; it’s so much more. A Support Worker could be taking the people supported to the beach, to hydrotherapy sessions, or providing sensory stimulation.
