We are looking for full time / part time / bank staff to join our team at Gt Ellingham
On a daily basis we empower people to meet their aspirations and goals in life, and to live as independently as they wish.
We work with people who have a range of support needs and our focus is always on the individual and how best to support them to live the type of life they wish to live, to have fun and make memories!
In this role you will be working in a Supported Living service.
The people we support have varying levels of support needs.
We also support people who have a learning disability, who may also be on the autism spectrum, have physical disabilities, complex needs, associated health needs such as epilepsy or mental health needs or dementia.
Some of the people we support may at times show that they are unhappy through their behaviour. This can be a way for them to control their environment when they are unable to communicate their hopes, needs and fears. You will work as part of a team to support them to make structured changes to their life to achieve a positive outcome.
We always base our support on the specific needs, choices and aspirations of the individual following our principles of person-centred support.
You will require your own transport as there is no public transport available
