We currently have two opportunities for support workers to join our team assisting individuals living in the Porthpean area. You will be responsible for enabling 6-7 individuals living in their own flats with access to a support hub with the focus area on 1 individual:

Preferably you will have experience supporting individuals with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and be able to work in a way that is truly person centred - aiming to make a real difference to the individuals' lives by promoting independence and enhancing their perception of quality of life.
Desirable: You will be a driver with access to your own vehicle
