Want to make a meaningful and lasting difference and also fit this around your own busy life? Why not start today and join Centre 404 as a Support Worker within the area of our organisation that supports children of school age and their families and carers? You’ll get to see the direct impact you are making by offering people with learning disabilities the support they need to enjoy the same rights, freedom, responsibilities, choices and quality of life as others within the wider community.
Centre 404 is a prominent and successful charity that offers friendly, reliable and person-centred support to people with learning disabilities, autism and their families. We currently operate across 6 London Boroughs.
This role will be part of our “Learning and Leisure” team which, amongst a wide range of services, provides support to school age children with learning disabilities living in their own homes in North London. As a Support Worker, you will provide support to service users to ensure their safety, health and wellbeing. Duties will include support with getting up and ready for school or college in order to have a positive and organised start to the day and getting there with the energy and motivation to enjoy the learning and opportunities for development that education offers.
We are looking for a proactive person with a can-do attitude and some record of working successfully with people with learning disabilities, or another vulnerable client group. In additional, the ideal candidate will have excellent verbal and written communication skills with service users, families and professionals.
The ethos behind all our services is to offer support that is empowering, person-centred, promoting choice and integration, as well as reducing isolation. We are always looking for friendly, energetic people to join us in achieving this valuable purpose and to promote and maintain the health and wellbeing of those we support.
