We are looking for weekend support workers who want to make a real positive difference with the people that they support! Is that you?
We support 8 adults between 20-40 years with Autism, learning disabilities and with limited verbal communication. Our service users are great fun unique individuals with lots of potential, however they also sometimes display behaviours that are very challenging.
No two days are the same here with this fun, caring and dynamic team. We encourage new ideas and activities as the service users love to be active and currently go horse riding, to the pub, cinemas, drives, days out at historic sites and much more.
As a support worker you would be expected to help with all of the day to day running of the house including; going on days out with service users, personal care, completing care notes, cleaning, taking people to appointments, assisting people to day services, cooking, going on service user holidays and anything else to help improve the lives of the service users.

At Aspens, we have over 100 years of experience in supporting people with learning disabilities and on the autism spectrum as well as children, young people and adults with a range of disabilities or complex needs. We are here to provide practical and emotional support at all levels of independence, in everyday environments and in the community so that each member of our extended family is empowered to live the way they choose. In fact, our most powerful advances come from the people we support, because they tell us how it should be.
