You'll be working across our Forensic services in the Greater Manchester area. At our Forensic services you'll support people who have been through the custodial system and are now working with our staff teams to live a life that is meaningful to them.
You'll join us in supporting people to enjoy a wide range of activities and hobbies. There are some pool players, fishing enthusiasts and bike riders at our services. Some people attend work placements and college courses. What they all have in common is wanting to live a better life.
We help people develop independence around the tasks of everyday living such as cooking, cleaning, and paying bills, at the same time as supporting them with their health and wellbeing, including mental health. We strive to find new opportunities for everyone and to make every day better.

We have an experienced team of trainers, colleagues and managers who will help you settle in and learn to do an amazing job.
