What does a support worker do?

Our Support Workers support adults in their own homes to live empowered, independent lives. A typical day might include helping them plan and prepare a meal, complete some household chores, or engaging in a hobby. You may also be helping with medication, financial management and personal care. 

Do I need previous experience?

Full training is provided. You do not need any previous formal experience – we need people who are caring, kind, compassionate and patient. Any experience that you may have in supporting a family member with anything from household tasks to emotional support will be helpful. You will have gained valuable skills in any customer facing role – communication, problem solving and team working. These are all relevant to providing support to people.
