We currently support three individuals at our registered service, offering a real variety in personalities and experiences of the people we support.

We are currently offering full and part time opportunities, with shifts that will include mornings, afternoons and evenings.

The people we support need you to be understanding, reliable and most importantly caring one of Mencap’s key values. They also need you to support them in accessing new activities and new challenges within the community.

However, all of the people we support also need you to be patient, kind and respectful three things that make up the backbone of a good relationship.
