From the most basic hygiene and daily chores through to more challenging life skills such as shopping and financial management, our Residential Childcare Workers provide support and development to the young people in our care, helping to meet their objectives and improve their access to the wider community.
We help them with personal development, meals, medication, education and all other day to day activities and we make sure that the home is clean, tidy, warm and inviting, fulfilling the needs of children, young people and families regardless of disability, racial/cultural origin or gender.
