Specialist Support Worker - Bank

Are you looking for a new start to 2021?

We’re currently recruiting support workers to join a brand new package of care in Preston supporting one individual within their own home.

Shift Times: 3 x 12 hour shifts per week.

Experience: Must have experience of working with individuals with substance misuse

I am a woman in my 40’s and have lived a chaotic life. I struggle to trust professionals, and this can affect my engagement with them. I’m currently living in my own home in the Preston area and I need a caring team around me to give me reassurance and encouragement and help me to live an independent meaningful life in my own home. I want confidence to access my local community. I just want my own place and surroundings where I can feel settled.


I need you to be a confident, motivational and empathic individual with firm professional boundaries and help me to work towards achieving my goals.

I require you to have substantial experience of supporting people with the following;

- Personality Disorder
- the cycle of Substance and Alcohol abuse
- pain management
- trauma informed care.
- Positive risk taking

I need you to support me with managing my disability and wound care. I would benefit from support when making positive life choices and encouraging engagement with all professionals.

I would like to make you aware that I am a heavy smoker.

I require you to have experience working with and understanding the Positive Behavioural Support Model and use proactive strategies to effectively support me in staying safe and making the most of my opportunities within the community. You will receive person centred training and support.

Does this sound like you? Please apply today.
