We aim at reducing risk factors through personalised centred planning and by using a number of techniques to build independence, promotion of well-being and coping mechanisms to prevent future difficulties and keep them safe.
The home is within a semi-rural location based near Ruddington Village.
We provide excellent training before you start which includes 10 day face to face training (this will include restraint training Mapa2) and you will be supported and welcomed by the team, working several shifts shadowing an experienced Senior Support Worker until fully competent and confident in the role.

This registered service supports individuals within the home and local community. As a Support Worker you will be assisting them to lead independent and fulfilling lives; the people we support are at the heart of all we do. A big part of your role will be supporting people to do their favourite things and try new activities. We ensure they reach their full potential - and of course we'll make sure that you reach yours.
As a leader in health care and support services for individuals throughout the UK, Voyage Care supports thousands of people. Across our services we support people to do various activities such as bowling, going to the cinema and on days out to the coast - so it might not feel much like work!
The individuals we support at this service enjoy a lot of community access, so confidence in lone working is essential. We are therefore looking for Support Workers with previous experience who can hit the ground running. However we will still provide a full training programme that is specific to the needs of the individuals we support.
