About the Service

It is important that you are flexible and able to adapt your service delivery dependant on the individual’s needs.  The individuals you will be supporting require you to administer medication as well as provide personal care; so you must be comfortable with this.  It is important that you can support these individuals whilst also encouraging their independence.  You will also be supporting with day to day things like finances; household duties such as cleaning; and to prepare and cook healthy meals.  We deliver waking nights and sleeping support.

We would love you to be able to speak Welsh, but this is not essential.  It is important that you can drive because the people we support enjoy accessing the community and trips out to local beauty spots.

You will need to have:

Good communication and interpersonal skills required

Ability to work to deadlines and within a constantly changing environment

Ability to complete paperwork

A willingness to participate in sleep-ins is highly desirable

A full drivers licence and a willingness to take out business insurance is essential for this position

You must have a positive attitude and want to improve the lives of those with a learning disability and in return we will support you with progression opportunities throughout your career with us.

What does a Support Worker do?

Supporting people to live independently – budget management, paying bills, housework, organising appointments and cooking delicious healthy meals.

Relationship building – supporting the people we support to understand the world around them and promoting positive relationships.

Community & Social Inclusion – supporting individuals to access and participate in their local community and social events to promote life skills and individuality.

Personal care – helping people to get ready for the day. This may include prompting the people we support to take their medication and assisting with bathing, showering and using the bathroom. Not all Support Worker roles include high levels of personal care.
