During my time with Making Space I enjoyed every minute of it spending time with the service users and supporting them. It was a Outreach Service in Chorley and then as a Tenancy Support Worker in Rochdale but I have recently applied a couple of times and Making Space has not got back to me . I really would love to work with them again but yeah I would recommend working for Making Space.
Work life balance and supporting the service users and good helpful management
Wages could be better
The company did try to help as much as they could we just had no base to meet and get PPE from so we could do are job The staff was always there on the phone to support with any problems
Got to meet amazing people also to make a difference to someone day
You don’t get a long time In the homes off the service users
As my first job as a support worker staff and management were really helpful. There were regular team meetings and the training provided was excellent. The staff that I worked with at the time were very helpful.
Training is really good, staff team were helpful
Many of the staff are lazy and do the bare minimum, leaving the harder working staff to pick up the slack. I have frequently been disappointed by the attitude of some of the managers and directors (particularly at head office) who seem to be out of touch with how their staff work on the front line
The level of institutional behaviour in the home I worked at was appalling and I was expected to unravel 18 years of this style within a few weeks. You’ll need a strong backbone and be confronted with a lot of resistance from the staff. Maybe do bank shifts first
There’s cliques and if you’re not part of them or willing to do everything you can to get into them then they don’t want you around. They do not take complaints seriously and do nothing to help you. Work life balance is a joke they expect you to drop everything to stay behind and work extra hours but if you’re even 5 minutes late they complain. It’s a bully filled environment with no mental,physical or emotional support.
This was a fantastic place to gain a huge amount of experience working with people with diverse mental health problems. The staff were all proactive and we discussed regularly improvements we could make to the lives of our service users. The service users themselves were making big steps to reach their goals and it was an honour to be a part of their process.
The time I spent working there From the start, it was fun, met some great people and enjoyed my time. I was actually amazed about when they mentioned work and life balance, that they care about employees wellbeing. however, I’ve seen non of that. Management is a bully. Racist environment Unprofessional management.
Job is ok
Working in Merseyside I found the job to be very interesting and fulfilling. I had my own caseload and gained brilliant experience and confidence in myself. However, I found a few members of the management team to be very conniving and unprofessional to put it lightly, which in the end effected my own mental health and I had to leave.
Parking is a nightmare as the office is located in the city centre and only 2 spaces available. Have the freedom to manage your own caseload of clients. Client group can be challenging and you will work hard for your wages. No 2 days are the same and great if you like being out and about as this is not a 9-5 office job.
Great team and lone working.
Can be stressful and challenging.
Overall just an amazing company to work for, good clients, good hours, food staff. Makes going to work so much easier. Supported living, not a care home therefore you’re not travelling all day long and you get to spend adequate time and care for the person you’re looking after
Good ideas, good staff
