Oxen Barn is a residential home for adults aged 18 plus, who have complex needs including autism, severe learning difficulties and associated challenging behaviours.
The home is situated on the outskirts of Leyland and consists of a detached house with grounds to the rear, and is split into two distinct houses. The accommodation allows adults to both enjoy the advantages of communal living but to also practice independence skills within their own quiet space.
As a Support Worker you will be a key member of our team, providing high standards of person-centred support and care to our service users. Through a creative and caring approach, you will build good relationships with both service users and their families, supporting service users in the planning of goals and in living as independently as possible. Both personal care and participation in activities are key tasks for the role, so energy and initiative is vital; experience however is not essential, providing you have a willingness to learn and the compassion and patience needed to support.
To deliver results, you must have Level 2 in Health & Social Care or equivalent. Good communication and organisational skills are essential, and you will need the flexibility to respond to the changing needs of our service users. A good team player, you will have the confidence to work on your own initiative when necessary. Add to that your energy, initiative and compassion and you will quickly make your mark in our supportive and forward-thinking environment.
All roles will be subject to a successful disclosure at an appropriate level from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), Access NI or Disclosure Scotland. We are an equal opportunities employer.
