Who we are
United Response is a leading national charity providing support to young people and adults with learning disabilities and mental health needs. We believe in championing the right of disabled people to live, work, socialise and participate in the community, free of discrimination and unnecessary boundaries.
We currently have two vacancies in two separate services: in one service the service you will be working in has one lady we support. The lady enjoys going out, bowling, going to discos, singing, dancing, and eating out. The Lady you will be supporting needs encouragement to maintain a healthy balanced diet. In this service there is personal care and manual handling; for example assisting in washing the lady, and pushing the lady out in the community in her battery operated wheelchair. The lady will show you how she likes her support and is very encouraging to new staff.
In the Second service the lady has complex needs, invasive personal care is an absolute requirement, training will be provided however in this service there is a lot of manual handling (hoist operating, pushing molded wheelchair). The lady in this service also shares a home with a gentleman we support. The lady enjoys going out and being active; going Chester Zoo, Knowsley Safari Park, Blue Planet Aquarium, visiting the Sensory room, she also enjoys a pamper day where she has a massage. The lady in this service requires staff who can also drive as she has a motability car.
