About the Role: 

The role of a Support Worker with Affinity Trust involves supporting each person to live the life they want within the community in which they live, to build positive relationships and to reach their potential. 

A Support Worker post with Affinity Trust is a varied and interesting role, which their staff tell them "is fulfilling, fun and offers real opportunities to make a difference to people's lives!" 

If you are passionate about supporting people and enthusiastic about supporting others to achieve their goals, they want to hear from you. 

On a daily basis they empower people to meet their aspirations and goals in life, and to live as independently as they wish. 

They work with people who have a range of support needs and their focus is always on the individual and how best to support them to live the type of life they wish to live, to have fun and make memories! You will be working with people who have Learning disabilities who may also have physical disabilities, complex needs and associated health needs. 

Some of the people they support may at times show that they are unhappy through their behaviour. This can be a way for them to control their environment when they are unable to communicate their hopes, needs and fears. You will work as part of a team to support them to make structured changes to their life to achieve a positive outcome. 

The support will vary from personal care, physical and emotional, budgeting, building and maintaining relationships with friends and family, to household tasks. You may also be required to support in days out in the local community. 

They always base our support on the specific needs, choices and aspirations of the individual following our principles of person-centred support. 

About You: 

They genuinely believe that if you have a positive attitude and values that align with their own they can train you on the rest! 

All of their Support Workers are dedicated to bringing their values to life every single day: 

Committed to doing the very best for the people they support and never giving up on someone they support 

Reliable and always do what they say they will do 

Honest & Open in all of their relationships and transactions 

Respectful of others, their views and their rights 

Inclusive in how they value diversity, support equality of access to opportunities and challenge discrimination 

Creative & flexible in our thinking, in their work and in how we use our resources 

Ideally you will need to drive and be able to drive the person`s car, but this is not essential. You will need to be able to work shifts flexibly across a 7 day rota, including weekends and bank Holidays and in addition sleep-ins may be required. 

They Value People: 

Affinity Trust value the people they support and they value their staff. They want you to have all the skills you need to support people in the best way possible so they provide all the training you need to do this. They will pay for all required courses and for you to attend all the required training.
