Job requirements Our  Independent Support Workers are a vital part of how we nurture independence in adults aged 18+.

You will be responsible for providing high-quality support to our young adults and helping to plan their day-to-day lives whilst working to achieve their goals and promote their independence, whether this be supporting with independent travel training, learning to cook or finding work experience. This will involve providing encouragement and support on tasks and goals they have set for themselves. Much like the amazing people you’ll be supporting, no two days are ever the same!

Resilience and adaptability are key as this role involves lone working on a 1:1 basis. Some personal care and administration of medicine may be required depending on who you are supporting, and you’ll receive full training and support for this to ensure you are fully equipped.

Professional or personal experience of care work is desirable, but we also pride ourselves on a values-based approach and the main skill we are looking for is an ambition to help others. If you are an individual who wants to make a difference to the lives of adults with learning disabilities living in Surrey then we want to hear from you!
