As a Specialist Support Worker you will support and enable people to live the life they choose: to make choices, to express themselves and live as independently as possible.

Sense also supports people to take part in some of our amazing arts and wellbeing activities – from dance to music making, swimming to rock climbing.

Being a Sense Support Worker can be the springboard to your future career - and to all sorts of opportunities and management roles.
