Delivering support with a difference. That's when it hits home
We have a rewarding opportunity for you to join our Transforming Care team, supporting our brilliant customers to live a fulfilling life in our supported living service. You'll be working as part of a small team, supporting one of our wonderful customers, to live in their own beautiful homes in Leeds.
Our customers have mental health & mild learning difficulties with a huge amount of potential to develop their skills to be as enabled and independent as possible. For one of our customers, their needs are more complex with both mental health and physical challenges and will need your support to help them live as independently as possible.
Our customers have many varied interests including a walk in the park, a trip to a coffee shop, a ride out on the bus, or going to the local gym to enjoy a swim and the steam room. They are looking for a team who will share their interests as well as encourage and support them to participate in lots of new activities too! Their homes are in a lovely quiet area with lots of shops, great bus routes and a train station nearby.
Each customer's home has a garden area where they can spend time relaxing and enjoy nature, they may even like to get their green fingers working some magic…
Home Group is committed to tackling prejudice and discrimination, not just for our customers, but for our colleagues too! We're super proud of our internal Diversity Networks and allies (Multicultural, LGBTQIA+ and Disability) which support colleagues from different backgrounds to be their true selves. We recognise and celebrate our differences, together we make Home Group a great place to work.
You'll be passionate and motivated to help our customers with all aspects of their day to day living and will really impress us with your ability to work in a person centred, strengths-based way. It's important that you have previous relevant experience, are willing to provide personal care and have the drive to help our customers reach their full potential.
If you have a Level 2 in Health and Social Care or equivalent that's fantastic, but if not, it's not a problem to us as we'll pay and support you to achieve it.
It will be advantageous if you have a full current driving licence and are able to drive to support our customers in the community, as some have their own mobility vehicle.
How we'll support you
We'll nurture your talent; help you understand how things work here and you'll have a fantastic induction with ongoing learning and support! You'll be trained to support our customer's mental and physical wellbeing using our support practice model LIFE (Living Independently, Feeling Enabled) and trained in Positive Behavioural Support to deliver brilliant outcomes.
You will be our 'night owl' working waking nights, covering 4 on 4 off. Our customers' need support 24/7 to meet their needs. We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers, but we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you too.
About our team and the role
You'll be working alongside Dipty our Registered Manager, Zoe our Occupational Therapist, your Team Leader and other Support Workers. Working in a person-centred way so that our customers can enjoy the best quality of life and live as independently as possible. You'll provide personal care to one of our customers, prompting and encouraging others in a strengths-based way, as well as use creative solutions, and assistive technology where available.
You'll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service which we'll pay for.
