At Pathways Care Consortium, our role is to provide person-centred support that starts each person we support on the road to greater independence, empowering them to reach their full potential.
The Support Worker role
As part of a key-working team, you’ll work with service users with learning disabilities and mental health needs and provide them with practical and emotional support on a day to day basis. Liaising closely with your team and other professionals you’ll make sure they are safe, happy and healthy.

We are also looking for people with experience who may wish to undertake further career progressive training and wish to make a lasting contribution to the care sector.
A team player, you can follow policies and procedures easily, and will have good writing skills, as you will need to write up reports and care plans. Above all, you’ll be committed to providing person-centred care that gives real equality of opportunity to all those you’re working for.
