Are You a Different Kind of Support Worker?
If so, then this post is definitely for you. We are putting people first and focusing on what people with a disability can do as opposed to what they cannot; supporting people in such a diverse way is one of the main reasons why Halton Supported Housing Network has won national awards.
We believe that people with a disability should be the drivers in their lives not the passengers; therefore person centred support workers need to apply to support and engage people to take the lead in living in their own homes.
Halton Supported Housing Network is a supported living scheme with properties across the whole of Widnes and Runcorn and supports adults with disabilities and complex needs.
The service has a number of vacancies for committed individuals to act in the capacity of Support Worker, promoting people with disabilities to engage in all aspects of their daily living and links into meaningful opportunities within their local community.
Could you, with training and guidance, support someone with a disability and contribute to our wonderful service?
