Dimensions is a national social care company and we are proud to have been recognised as one of the UK’s best workplaces in the ‘super large’ category by the Great Place to Work Institute three years in a row.

As one of the country’s largest not-for-profits supporting people with learning disabilities, autism, behaviours of distress, and complex needs, we are driven by our values. People with learning disabilities and their families are at the heart of everything we do and we want every person we support to have a great life, with excellent outcomes.

Dimensions has hundreds of services across England and Wales and have over 5000 colleagues supporting more than 2,500 people.

Our head office is based in Theale (Reading), however since the pandemic all business support staff now work from home, with access to work in shared workspaces.

We are always working to improve standards – our own and across the sector. Dimensions was one of the pioneers of personalised support, showing how it works in practice, and enabling thousands of people to have greater choice and control. We continue to be innovative in our approach, and our Strategy for 2025 outlines our commitment to becoming a leader in our sector.

Support Worker in Weymouth, Dorset

Okay

I felt that the company was okay to work for. I feel that my direct manager was decent to interact with but when trying to champion change, no real chance of getting anywhere.

Management are shocking

Management dont answer the phone or care about workers or know any residents personally but act like they do in the hour every month they pop in whilst they sit on there phone when your suppost to be having a meeting or moaning they have somewhere else to be. Everything is left down to support workers stuff well above pay grade. If Management don't like you you for sure will see this in the rotas from rarely having a weekend off. I used to love this job but lack of support and favouritism has drained the energy from my soul.
