Support Worker

Job Description

Job Description

Our new specialist service in Wolverhampton supports people with a learning disability and/or autism, who may have additional mental health conditions and challenging behaviour.

As a Support Worker you will be assisting them to lead independent and fulfilling lives. You will develop positive, respectful and trusting relationships with the people we support to improve their confidence and self-esteem, incorporating both therapeutic and social based activities. Our aim is to ensure that people we support reach their full potential - and of course we'll make sure that you reach yours.

You must be resilient, flexible and composed in your approach, following Positive Behaviour Support plans and understanding the importance of reflective practice to ensure the best outcomes for the person.

Whilst no two days are the same, typically you'll enable people to achieve a range of outcomes relating to their personal care, daily living skills, relationships and accessing community activities.

Candidate Description

Previous experience of working with people with a learning disability and/or autism who display challenging behaviour or have a mental health condition is required.
