How many people do you know that can say this about their jobs? Fancy a change? Ever thought of becoming a support worker?

“After breakfast, the people we support either relax, or get involved in activities of their choice, which I help them with. This might include attending communication workshops, playing games, going on trips around the county, going shopping, or anything else planned in their weekly schedules.
