We are currently looking for an energetic support worker to join our team at our outreach service based in Launceston, Cornwall. We are offering a 16 hour contract to work alongside a young adult male who has a learning disability who lives with a parent and sibling in the family home. An enzyme deficiency means that he has allergies and some care would need to be taken in order to meet his needs in this respect. For this reason we can only consider non-smoking applicants.

You would be working in a family environment where the family members provide the main support. You would never be required to work alone.

This role would suit someone who is energetic as one of the things that the person you would be supporting loves to do is to walk in the countryside and on beaches. In order to be able to get to a variety of locations a driving licence is essential. There is a motability car available to use in order to get to variety of different walking locations.

If you are looking for a role where no two days are the same and where you can make a real difference to the life of someone with a learning disability then we would be very keen to hear from you.
