There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ support worker. They range from school leavers who want a job that involves helping people, to those who want a career change and experienced support workers who want to work for a
company that truly places the people it supports at the heart of all it does.

The one motivation that links all of them is a desire to work with people; to make their lives better and to help them learn something new or take another step towards greater independence. Our support workers certainly don’t see what they do as ‘just another job’.

We are a values based employer. We shortlist and appoint candidates based on how they demonstrate that they share our values. Read about what they are here
