Would you like to make a difference in the lives of young people with Learning Disabilities and Autism? Are you a support worker looking for a fresh opportunity? If you would like to take up this exciting challenge then please read on.
This service is a highly specialised school with associated residential homes for young people between the ages of 6 and 19 who suffer with Autism and complex needs. Located in Astley Village, Chorley, Oliver House School enjoys a peaceful setting next to the beautiful Astley Park which includes a Pets Corner, lake, walled gardens and historic woodland as well as a café.
The school is supported by a group of medium sized residential homes located across Preston, Chorley and Leyland, which provide specialist, tailored care to service users. Continuity is the Key to providing the high quality of care, with staff working across both the residential and school sites. This innovative approach provides much needed familiarity and structure for the young person being looked after as well as minimising transitions throughout the course of a typical school day. In practice, this means that often the same staff member helping the young person with their morning care routine at the home is the same person with them on the bus to school, and the same person supporting them in lessons throughout the day.
These residential homes are looking to recruit high quality support workers to continue to provide excellent care to their service users.
