The Service

Craigewan is a purpose-built facility which is home to 11 individuals with learning disabilities, all living in their own self-contained flats.  The great thing about this job is that two days are never the same.  As a Support Worker you'll provide invaluable support with all aspects of their daily living, including cooking, cleaning, finances and medication.  

We'll also need you to be enthusiastic and creative supporting with their hobbies and interests too, these include baking, arts & crafts, hair & beauty treatments, pool, model trains & boats, walking and swimming & attending social events.
