The Role:

The Support Worker post is an opportunity to provide support in a person-centred way, supporting community connections, creating employment opportunities and helping people to establish a network of relationships - both by taking the initiative and working closely with colleagues with a "can do" approach in line with the Organisation's values.

The Support Worker also provides personal assistance to people who require it; this includes personal care e.g. practical help to wash, bathe, and cook meals. This position is an opportunity to work creatively with people and the organisation emphasises a team approach to work.
