Life as a Support Worker

Life as a Support Worker

Being a Support worker will mean helping our customers to live the lives they choose and work towards achieving their goals and ambitions.

All of our customers are different. They have different personalities and different support needs.

As a Support Worker you could find yourself supporting someone with daily living tasks like shopping, cooking or cleaning.

You could just as easily find yourself supporting people to realise their ambitions to go to college, developing their art and design or musical skills, getting a job or going out clubbing.

‘I really enjoy working with the customers. At times you don't feel like you are working. Sometimes things can be difficult, like in all jobs, but there is a lot to enjoy about this work if you are a positive and enthusiastic person.' Maame 

Some of our Support Workers are based in the community and travel to meet different customers. Others are based in Supported Housing schemes and work with the same customers all the time. Developing relationships with the people we support but keeping professional boundaries is a key part of the role.

‘I have found that helping other people has helped me to feel more confident. I get on well with my manager. She is always available if I need to talk or ask questions. The job is very varied. I do something different every day and I am not tied to one place. It is the perfect job for me in many ways.' Hayley
