Support Worker

27 hours per week. £11.18 per hour rising to £11.39 after successful completion of training and probation period.

We are recruiting a Support Worker to join our Woodbury Scheme team who work alongside people with a learning disability, supporting with everyday things and so much more.

The Woodbury Scheme aims to provide a high quality service to people with learning disabilities, for some of whom current service provision is a challenge.

Woodbury offers supported living, short stay and emergency respite and is constantly changing to provide the support that people using the scheme require.  As a result, we have relocated some of our service provision to new high quality, purpose-built accommodation within the borough and further developments are envisaged.
