Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home.
We have a fantastic job opportunity for a brilliant Supported Living Co-ordinator like you to join our fab and supportive team. Our CQC registered service provides care and support to our brilliant customers who have each got their own independent flat or bungalow. Our customers have either, a learning disability, mental health or a physical health need.
We have 8 flats and 4 bungalows in our service, which are all located in a great area, close to a selection of shops and great for bus route accessibility.
You’ll help co-ordinate our staff team to make sure that our customers achieve their aspirations. Our aim is to support our customers to live their day to day lives as independently as possible.
The team will tell you that no two days are ever the same because everything we do is “person-centered” around our customers. You might help with personal care (like bathing and issuing medication) in the morning and supporting them to attend college in the afternoon. We even help customers to go on holiday! Like our team, we’re sure you’ll find the role ever so rewarding.
