Our client is a friendly, local and thriving charity with an excellent reputation for providing high quality services to children and adults with learning disabilities and their families, in North London.

Their largest supported living project, Leigh Road, is a vibrant and busy project in Highbury with up to 60 staff supporting 19 tenants with a wide range of differabilities! The mix of both single and shared flats enclosing large communal areas promotes a real sense of community within the project. The tenants have built strong, supportive relationships both with each other and their staff teams. As such, there is a definite focus on group activities and an ethos of staff flexibility in order to meet the individual 1:1 goals of the tenants and continue developing the community aspects of the project.

Keen to get involved here or with exciting opportunities across their other projects? If you are positive, flexible and eager to develop new skills, this may be just right for you! They are always looking for friendly, energetic people to join them and promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of those they support, empower them to make choices and help build and maintain relationships with their family and friends.

You will provide support to children and/or adults with a range of mild, moderate and severe learning disabilities – this could be in their homes, at supported housing projects like Leigh Road, at their Centre or out and about accessing exciting activities!

They have a range of full-time and part-time permanent vacancies available. Previous experience in this role is not essential, as they are fully committed to staff development. As part of this, they will provide you with an in-depth induction, as well as ongoing training and support for you to learn everything you will need to be a great Support Worker.

They also offer Bank Support Work roles, which are ideally suited to people who are looking for flexibility and variety in their work.
