As a Support Worker you will support and enable people to live the life they choose: to make choices, to express themselves and live as independently as possible. Your patient support and encouragement will assist individuals to run their own lives as much as possible - helping with personal care, supporting someone to rustle up some breakfast, do the weekly shop or visit a local café. You can even go on both UK & Holidays abroad for free!!!

We also support people to take part in some our amazing arts and wellbeing activities - from dance to music making, swimming to going to concerts.

Being a Support Worker can be the springboard to your future career - and to all sorts of opportunities and management roles.

Being a support worker is not just about personal care.  In fact, it’s only a small part of it. For example, T needs support making her cup of tea in the morning, while B has a new found love of gardening so will need support in bringing his ideas to life in the garden. How about supporting F to organise her holiday or empowering C to join the social evening in the local pub?

Does this sound like something you could do?
