Job Description

Residential Support Worker

The vision we share at the Red House is to be a safe, stable, caring, nurturing and fun environment where the experience is akin to a large family home.

Part of Young Foundations, The Red House is a specialist provision for children and young people, who have a range of identified complex and challenging needs such as Autism, Learning Disabilities, Mental Health Issues and other health needs.

We strive to be a containing environment with a therapeutic approach underpinned by an understanding of trauma.

We have a fierce determination to understand our children and young people and support them to make sense of their journey, to heal and to step forward toward achieving their potential.

The Role:

As a genuinely caring and highly motivated Residential Support Worker you should embody our goals in improving the lives of our children and young people in a residential setting.

As a key worker you will have the opportunity to support this progress and development of the child or young person assigned to you and take a key role in improving their life chances.

To join our team you should have experience of supporting children or young adults in a similar environment.

It is desirable for you to hold the relevant SVQ Diploma 3 / 4 qualification in Health and Social Care. However, without this qualification we will also consider your application.

What Young Foundations Can Offer You:

Join an award winning organisation that offers Industry Leading Training:

Young Foundations was the recipient of the prestigious Laing Buisson ‘Innovation In Care Award 2018’, and is fully committed to the provision of exceptional learning and development opportunities for all of its employees: including training in attachment disorder, neurology, development and mental health and well-being.

The opportunity to study for a Bachelor’s degree while you work:

Young Foundations believe that the professionalism and expertise of our frontline staff should be recognised, by allowing them to achieve a credible level of nationally recognised qualification while they work. With this in mind, 2018 saw the launch of the Foundation Degree sponsorship programme in partnership with Glyndwr University, Wales. This programme allows the part funding of Young Foundations employees, to follow University programmes of work based education, that will lead to FdA and later BA (Honours) qualifications in Therapeutic Childcare.
