• Committing to showing dignity and respect at all times.
• Using own initiative and creativity to engage those supported.
• Complying with policies and procedures as set by the organisation and regulatory bodies including the Care Quality Commission & the local boroughs.

What’s important here is a willingness to learn and develop new skills whilst radiating positivity! You have the opportunity to really make a difference to people’s lives, and the most supportive team around you to help you do just that.
