Are you an experienced Support Worker committed to enriching and making a difference in the lives of people you support? 

We are currently looking for enthusiastic, resilient and driven Support Workers for one of the UK’s leading support services for adults with Autism. There are currently full-time vacancies across six houses, offering 37.5 hours per week, as well as a requirement for temporary staff to work on an ad-hoc basis.

Job Type: Flexible temporary ongoing shifts and block bookings

ABOUT THE ROLE:

As a Support Worker, you will support individuals in day-to-day life but also in visits to the local cinema, swimming pool, shops and the beach. The service also organises regular excursions to the nearby larger towns of Taunton and Weston-Super-Mare to encourage independence and interaction with the local community. They also allow adults with Autism to enjoy the independence of their own room and use of the communal house for meals and activities including music and art projects. The day centre offers service users the opportunity to do activities such as woodwork, gardening and arts and crafts.
Adults within the service often have difficulties with communication and in some cases are non-verbal. Some may also have mobility issues or physical impairments, so experience in a similar setting would be preferred but is not essential, and there may be some levels of personal care involved.
