Do you have a desire to make a difference to the lives of Home Life clients, and are considering a career in support? Or perhaps you already have experience of working with adults and you’re looking for flexible working hours to suit your current commitments?
At Age Connects North Wales Central, we have opportunities available for Practitioners to join our growing team, supporting adults across Denbighshire and Conwy. We are not a care agency therefore personal care is not provided.
Our Organisation
We are an empowering charity that has been providing various community and residential services to people in North Wales for almost 25 years. We pride ourselves on the way we work with empathy and professionalism and have an established track record of managing projects and services effectively and efficiently, focusing on achieving positive outcomes for the people who utilise our services.
The Role – Support Practitioner
We are in the process of growing the reach and presence of Home Life, a chargeable service which is now in its 3rd year of trading to assist residents across Denbighshire and Conwy.
As a Support Practitioner, you will join a friendly and growing team of 7 comprising 5 support workers, an Administrator and Team Lead, where you will typically find yourself providing to adults over 50:
* Shopping (food, clothes, homeware)

* Gardening (planting, weeding)
* Washing and ironing
* Light house cleaning
* Accompanying on trips out
This list is not exhaustive, and requirements are tailored to each individual client.
