What’s the Role: Support Worker
What It Takes:
An important part of the staff role is to support individuals within our service who have complex needs to enable them to live as independently as possible.
So the ability to be resilient, to communicate effectively and to utilise a variety of communication tools is essential.
Our dedicated staff team support our individuals to learn and develop their independence skills which includes tasks such as shopping, cleaning their home, accessing the community, budgeting and managing their tenancy.
