Craegmoor Supporting You provides innovative and creative support to individuals with learning disabilities, autism and/or mental health problems to live the lives they want and to achieve their goals.
We work with individuals who require support and assistance to live as independently as possible whether this is providing support in peoples’ own self-contained flats or via our outreach services. The level of support can range from a couple of hours per week to 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Church road is a newly built flat complex with 6 individual self-contained flats providing innovative and creative support to younger adults with learning disabilities, complex autism and/or mental health problems.
Church road enables younger adults to actualise their potential and live within a community setting, accessing education and employment, and developing social living within the wider community.
We provide support to individuals who are funded directly by the Local Authority, have a direct payment or individual budget and some people buy in support privately.
We are flexible and person centred in our approach, believing that no two people will have the same support needs, goals or aspirations and knowing therefore that everyone's support will be different. Our person centred support plans are developed in partnership with the people we support and others who are important to them. We always ensure that the process is meaningful and that the person we support has real opportunities to direct the process and state their wishes.
While we are able to support people with a wide range of learning disabilities, we have particular expertise in supporting individuals with very challenging and complex needs. Our behaviour specialists are fully involved in assessing need, setting up personalised packages of support that will really make a difference to a person's life and, alongside specialists from the Quality Team, supporting staff in providing high quality individualised support.
We are currently looking for experienced and dedicated staff to work with a group of young men living in a 6 flat complex in Hillingdon. A typical day supporting these young men could involve assisting with personal care, support preparing meals and completing housekeeping tasks as well as supporting access to the wide range of activities including achieving Duke of Edinburgh, going to college and other things they enjoy taking part in their community. All of the young men enjoy the company of people who are responsive and attentive to their needs and share similar interests and who can work flexibly to provide support over 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – this can include sleep-ins and waking night shifts.
Knowledge of PBS is desirable, while an ability to cope positively with challenging and diverse behaviours is essential.
If this sounds like you then we look forward to receiving an application from you soon!
