Are you looking for a job where you can really make a difference?

We are seeking an enthusiastic and dedicated support worker to join the team at this service providing support for adults with learning disabilities and associated health needs.

Highbury House supports individuals with Autism, moderate to severe learning disabilities and complex needs. The people we support here enjoy listening to Michael Jackson, watching the Greatest Showman, visiting the cinema to watch their favourite films and visiting the local shops for a spot of clothes shopping!

Fernlea supports adults with learning disabilities and Autism. This service is outcome focused and encourages the development of life skills. We work closely with the individuals we support to integrate them within the wider community. The people we support of Fernlea enjoy listening to wide variety genres of music, and musical theatre, they especially enjoy canal trips, visiting the zoo and watching their favourite football teams, not forgetting to mention visiting the seaside regularly for day's out.

Barra House is an Autism Specific Service and all staff here have received Autism Awareness training.

Our wonderful staff teams across all three of our local sites really do go the extra mile to ensure the people we support make the most of each and every day.

Due to the nature of the role you may be required to work across the three local sites, so with this in mind, a driver with access to your own vehicle would be desirable, but it is not essential.
