We are looking for a bank outreach support worker to cover the Poole area in Dorset. This role would involve working with individuals who live in their own property in the community, or with family. It would involve supporting just one person for the day or it could be two or three people over a few hours each, depending on the support required by that individual.

At the present time the majority of the support we provide is empowering people to carry out domestic tasks or accessing the community for things, such as doing their shopping, and often providing emotional support for them as well. All have different activities they like to do. They might need support taking medication and having meals but apart from that there is no typical day.

For example, T.S needs support making her lunch, while B.F has a new found love of gardening so will need support in bringing his ideas to life in the garden. You could be supporting F.D to organise her holiday or empowering C.R to join the social evening in the local pub.

There are many reasons people love been an Outreach Support Worker

  • flexibility of working hours with different support packages
  • Variety within the working week
  • Majority is working with higher functioning people on Autism/Asperger’s spectrum
  • Wide age range of individuals
  • Hours tend to be predominantly during the daytime/late afternoon time

 

We are paying £8.21 per hour plus benefits and provide excellent training. As an award-winning organisation, we are committed to developing you from within the company and giving you a realistic and progressive career path.
