Dimensions is proud to be one of very few social care organisations that are members of the Great Places To Work programme 2019, 2020 and 2021.
Start your day knowing you'll make a difference - join our team of Support Workers in Crawley and create a positive difference that improves the life for the people we support. We are looking for caring, compassionate, thoughtful people to join our SMILE Day Service team in Crawley. We support between 20-28 people daily with a variety of needs including learning disabilities, epilepsy, non-verbal communication, visual impairments, wheelchair use, PEG feeding and personal care. The people we support have a wide variety of interests from arts & crafts to singing, reading to outdoor activities and days out using our own automatic vehicles.
The day service is open Monday - Friday and we are looking for full time, part time and relief workers to fill our rota within the allocated shift times of 8:30am - 4:30pm. (Please note part time contracts would still have the same shift length, hours would be fulfilled by working less days each week)
A UK driving licence and willingness to drive a support vehicle is desired.
Please note we are hoping to arrange interviews in the week commencing 2nd August.
The Dimensions Approach to Support
Our unique “Activate” approach puts decision making closer to the people we support. It sets personalised and challenging goals with them, their families and you, their Support Worker - by teaching new skills and enabling people to try new experiences.
Research has proven that this progressive model is the best way to deliver measurable improvements in the quality of life for people - and you and your colleagues in their support teams. It achieves an increase in active support and meaningful activity for people, a reduction in challenging behaviour - and an increase in your own satisfaction, with over 60% of Support Workers reporting that the `Activate’ model has increased the quality of their working life.
Simply put, our ‘Activate’ approach offers you a better working life, with the satisfaction that you’ve changed someone’s life for the better, in a role where you can be the best that you can be.
