Support Worker

We are looking for outgoing, fun loving, big hearted Support Workers in Poole with tthe desire to make someone else's day better. 

We are looking for people who can help support a young man, who lives in a beautiful bungalow of his own with 24 hour support.  

He has a rare form of epilepsy, autism and additional needs. Sadly this can make some days tough for him. 

He has a smile that will light up any room and an infectious laugh. 

He loves the ocean, water play, bowling, and using his iPad. He also loves to watch films with his staff. He loves trips out in his van to the beach and enjoys a Guinness down the pub. 

He can at times display behaviours of distress, usually brought on by seizure activity or a transition he finds difficult. He is able to use a few words to communicate, but mostly uses PEC pictures and he will also take you by the hand to show you what he wants. 

Could you be the individual that brings sunshine to his day? 

Dimensions are one of the country’s largest not-for-profit organisation supporting people with learning difficulties, autism, behaviours of distress and complex needs and we are driven by our values.  People with learning disabilities and their families are at the heart of everything we do.

Dimensions is proud to be one of very few social care organisations that are accredited by the Great Places To Work programme 2022.
