SUPPORT WORKER VACANCY
GLASTONBURY
20 HOURS A WEEK
£12.00 AN HOUR

You First is a “not for profit” Social Enterprise that supports adults with learning disabilities, autism and/or mental health illness to live their best lives. We exist to make a real and lasting social difference, seeing people build and grow their lives according to their own values and world view.

We achieve this by building small teams of Support Workers (Micro-Teams) around the person supported. Micro-Teams enable the development of empowering relationships, based on mutual trust and respect, and they ensure that the person supported maintains full control over how their support looks.

As a member of a Micro-Team, you would be supporting people who live independently, on their own, in their own homes. You might visit 2 or 3 people in one day, or you may support just one person for a longer period

Support is provided on a one-to-one basis in the community. You will need to have a full driving license and access to a reliable vehicle

For this position your main activity will be supporting T and J who live in Glastonbury. 

T is in his sixties and lives independently in Glastonbury. T has a learning disability and autism and communicates non-verbally. He enjoys motor car racing, football, eating out, tending his garden, people watching and getting out and about. T loves to socialise with friends.

J has autism, anxiety and sensory processing disorder and also hoards. J needs support from people who can provide emotional support, use active listening skills, and are skilled in distraction and deflection techniques.

For working with both T and J you will be paid £12.00 an hour.
