This is an incredibly rewarding role, working closely with the therapy team, education colleagues and our Local authority partners to create an environment that inspires and empowers. Seeing our children taking their next steps is why our staff love working for Horizon Care and Education!

Our success means that we are opening new residential homes and schools and making a difference for young people in a variety of new areas as well as continuing to support young people in our established services.
