Support Worker in Godalming
on 8 July 2022
Exciting place to work; each day very different
Arriving at work we would chat about who we had in this day, as some People We Support are only in on some days. On a good day we'd have been given handovers from the home, about their folk. The board would be updated with which sessions are on and who is running each session, also which PWSs are due in the session. We would then ensure the building was set up for the day. The management was "interesting"; when I joined, the manager of the site I was placed at was about to be leaving. The replacement had yet to be chosen. Once the initial manager had left and their replacement took over there was a notable change in the way things worked (for the better imho).The hardest part of the role, for me, was supporting female PWSs with their Personal Care needs. This was an entirely new experience for me, as my previous employers had had a strict 'Men support men and not Women', whereas women were allowed to support either gender.The most enjoyable part of the job were the small things where PWSs would acknowledge their acceptance of me. So one PWS I would ask, "$%^&^, may I sit next to you?" when this was met with a smile from a non-verbal PWS it made my day. Likewise, it was always good when a PWS would choose to come to me for support!!!

Awful place to work
Staff at Kingsley house are extremely unprofessional, two faced and set you Upto fail. Management are all friends and it seems progression comes from being friends over being good at your job. Unprofessional management style, underserving staff get promotions leaving the hard working staff to pick up their slack. Regularly understaffed and left in dangerous situations. Staff not responding to emergency alarms. Residents left to sit in their flats all day. No support from above. Overworked and underpaid. Working with the residents is amazing and rewarding but constantly fighting a loosing battle. Abuse reports ignored.

Avoid at all costs
They sweet talk you into the job but once your in you are bombarded by abuse, endless carrots on sticks, unrealistic work loads and regardless of what promises are made unless you are in the cliche with the management there is no chance of advancement.Just don't do it

Fun workplace
My colleagues were supportive and really made the job feel easy. They were friendly and helpful despite dealing with challenging behaviour from the service users at times.It involved going out to nice places.

Poor place to work
Management was poor. Building was a state and needing improvement. Pay was poor.Staff not appreciated.Top level staff were related to each other which should never been allowed it didnt work well. Was a atmosphere where people talked about each other behind their backs.
