Job Advert

Community Support Worker – The Rivers Area, Ipswich

 

Office work not your thing? How about a role where you can make a really positive difference to people’s lives every day?

 

If you can offer help and support to people, to lead an active and enjoyable life with as much independence and choice as possible, then we’d love to hear from you!

 

Our new Supported Living home in the Rivers area of Ipswich is for 2 young adults to share, both having learning disabilities and complex needs. The individuals will be supported to live independently, both attending school on a part time basis for the first year.  Both individuals will have a Person Centred Plan that identifies their own likes and dislikes which enables the support team to provide support tailored to the individuals needs and wishes alongside working towards their identified goals in life they wish to achieve; this can range from simply accessing the local community to just visiting friends and family. 

 

We are looking for people who have the energy and creativity to support these individuals to reach their goals and aspirations.

 

We’re not looking for experience or qualifications, we’ll give you all the training you need. What we want above all are genuinely kind people, who will really get a thrill from enhancing the happiness and wellbeing of people’s lives.

 

If that sounds like you, we think you’ll love working at our new service.
