Creative Support is seeking compassionate individuals for an exciting opportunity to be part of a team of Support Workers in our new Transforming Care Service in Preston.

The Trauma Informed Care Service will provide three single bespoke adapted supported living services in the Ingol area of Preston for women over 18 with learning disabilities, autism and mental health needs with trauma histories.

The service will operate 24/7 using a trauma informed model of care to move three women out of long stay institutions into their own home in the community. The service will support women to achieve real control over their care and support to prevent re-admission to hospital and maintenance of their homes in the community.

In your role as Support Worker you will support residents with cooking or baking, household tasks and meeting personal care needs, as well as meeting unique personal goals. You will be happy working in a consistent, predictable way, enjoying a calm and quiet environment that meets each individual service user’s needs.

You will have experience working with individuals with learning disabilities, autism and those with traumatic histories.

Due to the development of the service all staff members recruited will initially be required to work dynamically between the Registered Office and across two inpatient settings to ensure the smooth development of the service and excellent transitions of service users until all three homes have opened.  The Registered Office building will be available at the onset based at Creative Support’s Space Centre in Preston.

In return we offer a wide range of benefits to ensure job satisfaction. This includes:

  • A one-off bonus of £100 upon successful completion of the 4-month probationary period
  • Competitive pay and a pension with company contribution and 28 days annual leave
  • Company paid enhanced DBS for all staff
  • Free employee support programme
  • All our staff are supported 24/7 by our out-of-hours teams
  • Support to complete the nationally recognised Care Certificate and Social Care Diploma
