We need dedicated Support Workers to work with adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs in Worlingworth near Diss and surrounding areas.
This is also a great opportunity for carers (HCAs) looking to work in a different setting. Although experience is desirable we will fully train you to ensure you have all the skills needed to provide the very highest standard of support.
At Affinity Trust all of the people we support have a learning disability but many have associated health needs, dementia, physical disabilities, profound and multiple learning disability, mental health needs or behaviours that may challenge.
Being a support worker means you are integral to the day to day lives of the people you support, helping them with various activities such as assistance with personal care, household chores, meal preparation, leisure activities, social inclusion and maintaining health and well-being.
Being a driver is essential, you will need to be able to work flexibly across a 7 - day rota to include early mornings, evenings, bank holidays, weekends.
In addition, waking nights and sleep-ins.
Support work offers you a chance to make a genuine difference to people’s lives and no day will be the same!
All our Support Workers complete shadow shifts before working with the people we support and those that have not previously worked in care will be supported with completing the Care Certificate.
