Affinity Trust support people with learning disabilities as it believes that every adult has the right to own an independent and fulfilling life. They are a national charity that provide high-quality personalised support for over 700 adults with learning disabilities and autism. Helping them to live a worthwhile life is their main goal.
We all know that when one part of your life is going well, other things tend to fall into place. Supporting people to achieve little things on a daily basis enables them to achieve much more on a longer term basis.
You can enable people to achieve those small steps – whether it is supporting someone to get up and organised each day, supporting them to make their own decision about what to have for breakfast or to go to the cinema, shopping or a football match.
If you are passionate about supporting people and enthusiastic about supporting others to achieve their goals we want to hear from you.
Being a Support Worker is very practical. You will work hard to ensure the people you support take an active role in their community. You will need to have a flexible approach and be happy to think of and try different ideas to make it work . Working as part of a team will be basic.
Supporting people with learning disabilities can be challenging and it is also extremely rewarding. If you are looking for a role where you can really make a difference to people’s lives, apply today.
Previous experience in supporting people, either in a paid or unpaid capacity, would be advantageous. We are looking for people who are committed, enthusiastic and willing to learn. We will provide you with all the training and support you need.
We value our staff as well as we value the people we support. We want you to have all the skills you need to support people in the best possible way so we provide all the training you need to do this (We pay you to attend all the training). We can support you to achieve recognised qualifications in Social Care.
