Kenton

Part-time, 30 hours per week 

Are you able to motivate others in a consistent and calm manner?  Do you have experience managing behaviours that distress proactively and with an understanding of why people may behave in this way? Can you connect and build strong relationships with sometimes complex individuals? 

We're looking for Support Workers who are passionate about supporting adults with learning disabilities and autism to increase their independent living skills, well-being, and engagement, whilst enabling them to live their lives how they choose.

Day-to-day, you can expect to provide support with personal care, meal preparation, medication administration, grocery shopping and household tasks including cooking, cleaning and laundry.

The people we support in Kenton have a range of interests that include video games, YouTube, riding bikes, going out for meals, visiting friends and family, playing with remote control cars, making scrapbooks, going shopping, watching football and dog training. We provide person-centred support where every individual is supported to pursue the activities and hobbies that are important to them.

Shifts are 8am - 10pm, 8am - 3pm, 3pm - 10pm. We provide support 24/7 so we’re looking for people who can be flexible to work during the week, at weekends and the occasional bank holiday.
