We have an opportunity for a Children’s Residential Support Worker to join one of the UK’s leading Children’s Residential Service providers.
Your role will be to work along the already established team supporting children with Learning disabilities and Autism aged between 5 -18 years old in Cardiff. The service comprises both a residential home and a school.
The spacious and modern home is a series of six flats and offers a wide range of learning and living options for its service users. Each child has their own bedroom and is encouraged to get creative and put their own personal stamp on their own space.
The children are supported to socialise and meet lifelong friends in a safe and nurturing environment. The approach blends a mixture of education and care with therapeutic support to focus directly on life, work and independence skills. If you are a caring patient person who would like to get paid to do arts and crafts, baking, play football and go on cinema trips, this could be a great role for you!
