There are some brilliant people in our local community…
And, for a number of reasons, they might not be able to do the things they enjoy doing…they need a bit of help and support along the way.
So where do I come in?
If you have a few hours spare each week, you could use them to become a self-employed support worker in our Community Support Team.
And if you’re thinking you don’t have enough experience…it’s alright, we’ll train you!
And if you don’t drive, that’s ok too. We prefer people to use public transport anyway.
What you do need, is great commitment and a caring nature.
What would I have to do?
As a support worker, you’ll help people get the most from their life. You’ll help them to remain independent, so that their lives are based around the things that matter to them.
This can include leisure activities, further education or helping them get back in touch with old friends.
Our support workers work with older people, people diagnosed with Dementia, adults with mental health illness or learning difficulties, and children in transition from children’s to adult services.
The perfect match?
What’s great about this job, is that we’ll try to match carers with people of similar hobbies and interests. So in theory, the things you’ll be doing together are things you’ll both enjoy.
So it’s a few hours a week?
The post is self-employed…you can control how many hours you work! Whether that’s three hours per week or 37…it’s your choice.
I’m interested…how do I find out more?
