What does Support Work involve?

As a support worker you will help people with learning disabilities to live safe, fulfilling, and dignified lives in supported accommodation or their own home.  We work on a rota which includes working some weekends, early and late shifts. If you prefer to work nights, we also have some vacancies for waking nights.

LDN London is happy to be recruiting for a new service in Islington in a new purpose-built development near Angel Tube station.  This is planned to open in June/July 2024.

The 11 tenants want team members that can work flexibly as they need support through the day and the night.

People want to be part of the community and to develop independence skills and so understanding the principles of doing with and not for is important.

You need to be digitally confident in use of Apps and other systems which help people be more independent and tracking progress.

You will be working with people who need assistance with every aspect of daily living, supporting complex health conditions, assisting people with sensory loss and communication challenges as well as with people who are significantly more independent but vulnerable to coercion and control and who may reject support.

You will be part of a large team and working as partners with professionals and families and so your communication skills and level of professionalism must be at the highest level.

Being a team player who can take on additional responsibilities based on a key working model is also a requirement.

Training will be provided. Adherence to our values is core to our recruitment and will be tested through interviews and during probation.

We currently only have vacancies where manual handling is an intrinsic and regular part of the job.
