At Bannister Farm Cottage we provide 24/7 specialist residential support for people who have autism. The service is set out in three different sections, comprising of the main house where 3 people share and 2 individual units for specialist support.
The people that we support have high communication needs, so to help promote their independence and community participation, we provide them with the skills and tools to communicate their needs and wants to others in a way that is deemed socially acceptable which, in turn, reduces the number of behaviours that challenge.
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.
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.
