Support Worker - Ipswich - 30 hrs

Posted 7 February by Mencap Ending soon

Our supported living service is based in Ipswich, where we support 6 gentlemen and 4 ladies with a learning disability, across 6 flats in one cul de sac. The people we support range from 35-75 years old and have a diverse range of diagnoses and mild to complex needs. They all have different personalities and varying interests, so no two days are the same!

We will be looking to offer permanent contracts of up to 30 hours, with an opportunity to work overtime at our service or another, if this is something you would like to do. The shifts are rota'd in advance across Monday - Sunday over 24 hours. Shifts are between 7am-10pm (Include BH). There are three sleep in's on site from 10pm-7am with a shift either side. You will be required to work one sleep in a week. We ensure you have 2 days off each week and 1 in 3 weekends off.

Things you may need to support with:

  • Personal care
  • medication
  • Mobility
  • Finances
  • Cooking, cleaning & going to the supermarket
  • Updating relevant records
  • Attending health appointments
  • Social activities including day trips and holidays.

Please look at our One page profiles for more information regarding the people we support and our service.

You will be actively promoting and encouraging the people we support to make their own choices in everything they do. You will also be involved in great things like: planning holidays, playing snooker, attending clubs, shopping trips, eating out and much more.

We are looking for someone with a 'can-do' attitude, who is enthusiastic and outgoing. The people we support require their support workers to have a genuine interest in assisting them to live as independently as possible.

We are a large and supportive team with a Manager who appreciates their staff and supports with development where possible. If you are looking for something a bit different, that is a challenge but can be fun and extremely rewarding then please apply today!
