The feeling of supporting and empowering people with learning disabilities and autism to live a life that makes sense to them is the most heartfelt. And seeing the positive impact that YOU can make is unforgettable...

We love what we do and are recognised as an award winning charity for our passion and dedication. Join us as a  Support Worker and you'll soon see why. This role is Full-time 37.5 hours per week but we would also consider applicants interested in Part-time work.

At this facility, we support two young people in their 20's with autism and complex needs. You will support them with daily living tasks such as shopping, cooking and cleaning. You'll encourage them with personal care and find ways to help them manage their behaviour, which can be challenging at times. (Positive behaviour support training provided.)

You'll join in with their favourite pastimes and hobbies. . And they're always keen to find new interests - perhaps you have some interesting hobbies to share with them?

You'll take your turn working shifts on a rota which will include mornings, weekends, bank holidays and sleep-ins (approx. 1/2 per week). The role can include some lone working.
