Care in Auchtermuchty
on 27 January 2022
Caring and Developing
Working with our kids is both challenging and rewarding. Seeing the little changes, confidences and growth in kids is a privilege. Enjoying making connections and memories is a daily bonus but it does take a lot of reflection and learning to develop understanding as every kid is unique.

Working From Home
A lot of people have commented that they've struggled working from home during the pandemic but working with A Life Explored has offered the best of both worlds because when I come to work, it's like my second home and I still get fantastic company, good homecooked meals and a the best welcome when I arrive. The kids are amazing and are truly inspiring, it feels great to notice little changes in them as they grow up and I love being a part of their lives. While this kind of career asks for a lot of self reflection and personal development, it is worth it and I feel like I have a better understanding of myself and my own family.

Creating second chances and opportunities
Even after a really difficult shift where I've been challenged and the kid has struggled I feel lucky to be in his life and making a difference. It's not always easy but we get to do cool things like have parties, bike rides, exploring and trampolining and seeing the little differences makes the harder days worth it. It's like a home from home with family mealtimes and summer holidays and good people around to support when you're not at your best. It's important to be motivated to learn about and understand trauma and to have empathy, people who don't will find the job difficult.

Progressive Organisation
The actual job is about emotions and being sensitive to trauma and thinking about why kids are behaving rather than reacting to how they are behaving. This is difficult for some people who come here, it's not like other residentials so not everyone will be suitable. Getting to make memories with the kids is amazing and I've learned a lot about myself while being here. Nice to work for a company that respects your opinion and feedback. I feel valued here and get lots of support but I also get to work independently and feel some pride in that.

Great place to work, good ethos
I worked with this organisation for over 2 years and I am surprised by some of these comments. They give an unfair representation of the organisation and the great work they do. The job is not for everyone às working with children who have experienced trauma can be challenging and this is often the real reason staff leave.
