We are looking for an enthusiastic person to offer truly outstanding support and make a real difference! As a Support Worker, you will be supporting a gentleman living in the Penzance area, this is a challenging but rewarding role.

Steve has recently moved to Newlyn and settling into his new home, and exploring the local community. We are currently working on strategies to support Steve to lead a more fulfilled and independent life in a locality where he will be empowered to access and participate in an active community-based life. Steve particularly enjoys wandering around town and the local shops and has recently begun swimming and is enjoying going to local, small festivals.

If you have a positive work ethic, a strong ‘can do’ attitude, and enjoy supporting people to improve their personal goals and identified outcomes apply today and apply to join this small, dedicated team.
