Being a Support Worker at AFG is a hugely rewarding role and could be your first step on a long and happy career in Health & Social Care.

So, what does a Support Worker do?

We have a vision to create a world where people control their lives. Here at AFG, we pride ourselves on helping the people we support to design, develop and 'own' the support they receive by planning this with them; we support people to make informed choices and increase their own independence; and we support people to maintain their own health, wellbeing and living environment. These principles are really important to us.

Our Support Workers work in a variety of settings including community-based services (often supporting people in their own homes) to our Treatment & Recovery Centres.

One thing that is common across all of our services is a focus on personalised support and tailoring our services to the needs and aspirations of the people we support with a diverse range of care needs (including Learning Disabilities, Physical Disabilities, Mental Health Concerns, Complex Care, Substance Misuse issues to name a few).

We value the people that work with us…

At AFG we recognise the contribution and value that our staff make. We would not be able to provide the life changing support that we do without people like you! In return for your contribution we will support you throughout your career and we provide a wide range of employee benefits, career development (including opportunities to undertake vocational qualifications) and lifestyle support services to ensure that you too feel supported, fulfilled and valued from day one of your employment with us.

About you…

There are a few things that we look for in all of our support workers; we would need you to…
* be a good communicator (verbally and in writing)
* be patient, confident and enthusiastic about caring for others
* be able to use your own initiative
* be able to work as part of a team
* have flexibility to work a varied shift pattern to provide 24-hour support
* share our AFG values

We don't ask for any other relevant training or a previous career in care as full training will be provided - you just need a willingness to learn and develop.

As a 'values based' employer, the people that work for us genuinely care about the people they support, and we are seeking likeminded people to join our AFG family. If you are passionate about caring for others and have a real desire to make a positive difference to the lives of the people we support then we would love to hear from you.

Now that we've told you about what it's like to work for Alternative Futures Group, find out more about the vacancy!

This vacancy is based in the Quernmore area of Lancaster, supporting 1 x male and 1 female who live at one of the homes we provide support to.

The people you will be supporting have a learning disability, mental health needs, and have complex support needs.

The people we support can access the community, and enjoy a variety of activities, including eating out, swimming, cycling, shopping, music, pubs, and concerts.

They require support with finances / household chores / managing a tenancy / building social skills / health and hygiene needs / lifestyle skills / moving and handling / medication management / personal care/communication.

We are looking for someone who can drive / work flexible shifts which may include days, nights and weekends.

You will be working with a large experienced, friendly team of existing staff team.

Please note our Support Workers are contracted by area therefore flexibility is essential to work in other services where required.
