Are You a Different Kind of Support Worker? If so, then this post is definitely for you.

Halton Supported Housing Network is a group of 19 houses across Runcorn and Widnes, providing accommodation and support for adults with learning and physical disabilities in the community.

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 support and engage people to take the lead in living in their own homes. The service has multiple 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.

The role will include working alongside people who at times can display behaviour that can be challenging. Ideally, you will have NVQ qualifications in Adult Social Care and experience in working with Physical disabilities and being able to undertake personal care is also essential. This is a lone working post and you should therefore be comfortable working on this basis.

This is a challenging but extremely rewarding role which, working on a rota basis, may include work at weekends, bank holidays and some sleep-in duties. Additional enhancements for unsociable hours worked are payable.

We have several roles available, ranging between 6 hours to 33.5 hours per week, so whatever your situation we feel we could have the right position for you, to enable you to enjoy a positive work/life balance.

The posts available are:

1x 6 hours

1x 9.5 hours

2x 16 hours 

1x 21.33 Hours

2x 28 hours

1x 28.5 Hours

1x 33.5 hours

In return for your commitment, we can offer you a competitive salary, generous annual leave entitlement and access to the Local Government Pension Scheme. We also provide a comprehensive training programme as part of your role.
