Do you want a Real
Real Life Options is a registered charity, come and work for Real Life Options and you’ll start your day knowing that you’re making a difference by supporting greater independence and creating more opportunities for people with learning disabilities and autism.
You’ll have a really rewarding role working with a great team of people and the chance to make a real difference to other people’s lives. We will support you along your career path to learn, develop and grow.
We deliver creative, flexible, person-centred and individualised support to people living in 3 shared residential homes. The services are located centrally in Harrow and Brent. There are several public transport links in the area, so drivers are not essential. If you are a driver, free parking is available.
You will be providing support to adults with autism, learning disabilities, mobility issues, and dysphasia. This will be under one roof rather than door to door. We support individuals to live independently, taking them out into their local community to visit day centres, arts & craft events, musical theatre trips, skills academies, museums and exhibitions.

Previous experience is desirable for this position although full training will be provided.

This will involve being allocated with a ‘buddy’ (an experienced member of staff showing you the ropes, who will be on hand to support you all the way).
