Creative Support is a national not-for-profit organisation providing support to individuals with a wide range of care needs. We are committed to providing responsive, person centred care which promotes the independence, wellbeing and social inclusion of the people we support.

In 2018 we launched our new Creative Together Centre, based in Manchester City Centre where Creative Support began over 28 years ago. Our new city centre hub aims to provide an inspirational and inclusive space for the Creative Support community; including our staff, service users, volunteers, partners and individuals from the voluntary sector. The vibrant centre offers our service users opportunities for coproduction and creativity while enabling us to connect with our local community and establish long-lasting partnerships.

At Creative Support we recognise that creativity is a way of promoting social inclusion for individuals, as well as bringing together our community. Our focus at Creative Together is on promoting opportunity, choice and wellbeing through our activities, training programmes and our Nourish Café, which provides nutritional, affordable meals.

We seek a motivated and organised Sessional Activity Worker to plan and provide group and one-to-one cookery sessions for the people we support. As a creative individual who enjoys working with a person-centred ethos you will develop enjoyable and engaging activities in response to the identified needs, interests and preferences of those accessing our service.

You will use your activities to facilitate social inclusion and community links, while promoting the physical and mental wellbeing, confidence and independence of our service users. This role would suit someone who is looking for an interesting and varied role that will enable them to use their strong interpersonal skills while working flexibly alongside staff and volunteers.
