Are you ready to make a positive difference to someone’s life?

Peter, Emily* and others like them are looking for people to support them to live their lives as independently as possible by becoming part of their team of Support Workers in our modern town-centre supported living accommodation services in Rugby, where no two days are the same.

Part of a supportive team, you will lone-work at times so will have the ability to remain calm in an emergency, know when to seek support, be confident and resilient in managing difficult situations and above all, have the interests of the people we support at the heart of everything you do.

You may already have experience of supporting people with mental health needs and/or learning disabilities and other complex needs. You may have a background in care or have worked in an environment supporting people who are vulnerable for a variety of reasons. Whether or not you have previous experience, we are looking for people who can demonstrate compassion, respect and empathy.

Could you support Peter*? 
Peter is 24, likes going out with his friends, socialising at the local pub, going to the cinema to see the latest films and would like to get a job. Peter has mental health needs and at times does not engage in his support, however he needs encouragement to maintain his flat, to keep it clean and to learn to cook healthy meals.

Could you support Emily*? 
Emily is 20, has moved out of her family home for the first time, has a partner, attends college and would like to start a family. Emily has learning disabilities and needs encouragement and support with daily living skills, such as managing her money and doing shopping; and with maintaining positive friendships. 

*Peter and Emily are just examples of some of the people you will support.
Every person we support is an individual; they are all unique, have their own hobbies and interests. You may support individuals with their personal care, daily living skills and involvement in their local community. Your role will be to support them to live their life to the fullest, keep them safe and support them to take positive risks, helping them to achieve their hopes and aspirations.
