About the People We Support

We support one lady and one gentleman in their 40s-60s who love:

  • Horse-riding
  • Walking
  • Baking
  • Swimming

  • Spending time in their beautiful garden

The people we support have learning disabilities, diabetes, autism, and additional needs. We help them live their lives as independently as possible within their own home. Your role will include providing emotional reassurance during moments of distress, with full positive behaviour support training provided. Friendly, patient, and reliable support workers who take an active interest in their hobbies and activities would be wonderful matches.

Empowering Independence: Support them to live their lives how they choose, be themselves, and achieve their personal goals.
Daily Support: Provide full personal care, some wheelchair assistance, medication administration, budgeting, cooking, cleaning, and laundry.
