Camfan is a support/ resource centre, based in Lampeter, for individuals and their families who are experiencing mental health issues.

What does the role involve?

A Support Worker is an exciting role that focusses on clients’ individual needs and aspirations – what we call a person centred approach. No two days will be the same; you will need to be comfortable with variety, problem solving and change and be non-judgemental, have personal resilience, and be able to stay calm under pressure. You will help them find the key that unlocks their potential so that they can live to the full.

What is expected from you?

The most important thing you need is to have the right attitude and believe that everyone can achieve great things, given the right skills, assistance, choices and opportunities. You don’t need any specific qualifications or experience, but you must have the commitment to on-going learning and development as well as gaining a qualification.

Being a car driver is essential.  This position will include sleep ins and oncalls as part of the role.
