We are looking to recruit Support Workers in the Wallsend area of Tyne & Wear. This role is accessible via the A19 and A1058 transport links and a short 15-minute commute from Newcastle City Centre.
Support Worker – who will you be supporting?
My name is Amber, and I live in a shared house with 3 of my good friends. We all get along and I love the times we share (although sometimes we do disagree!) I have autism and I really do struggle if my routine isn’t kept simple and structured and when I am on my own, I can get agitated and upset, this can lead me to make a loud humming noise. I have a Support Worker called Emily and she is a massive help to me. Without her I would always be late for college, I wouldn’t be able to have a nice warm breakfast, and I would forget to take my medication. I also wouldn’t be able to get out in the community swimming twice a week which is what I love. One day I would like to possibly get to the Olympics, that’s my dream. Emily is there for me when I’m sad or worried, she talks to me and explains things in a clearer way, so I can process what’s happening. Without her I wouldn’t be able to have independence in my own home, which is what life is all about isn’t it!
Who will you be joining?
You will be joining a unique provider, who promote independence for adults with learning disabilities, living in their own flat or supported living scheme. They believe that everyone should be themselves no matter what and that everyone should have the same opportunities in life and that a disability should not be a barrier.
This could just be the start of your journey as this organisation actively promotes from within and encourages people to progress. There are lots of opportunities to progress within this organisation and if you are interested in a Senior role, then this could be perfect for you and we would love to discuss all the opportunities in more detail with you.
