What does an Adult Support Worker do?

Emma is an example of one of the adults that you may support:

My name is Emma, 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 is not kept simple and structured. 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 Lisa, who is a massive help to me! Without her I would always be late for college, I would not be able to have a nice warm breakfast, and I would forget to take my medication. Also, I would not be able to get out in the community swimming twice a week which is what I love! Lisa is there for me when I am sad or worried, she talks to me and explains things in a clearer way, so I can process what is happening. Without her I would not be able to have independence in my own home, which is what life is all about - isn’t it!?

Becoming an Adult Support Worker could be just the start of your career within Adult Social Care, this organisation actively promotes from within and encourages people to progress. You will be joining a unique provider, who promote independence for adults with learning disabilities, living in their own flat or supported living setting.


So, could you make a difference? Do you believe everyone should be themselves and have the same opportunities as everyone else?
