Enjoyable and rewarding work with families and young people. Lack of much needed support and supervision from manager.

Support work was rewarding with families. I learned a lot whilst working at Spurgeons and enjoyed supporting young people.Regular training and opportunities to do additional if money was available.However, there were not enough resources and heavy case loads made it difficult to achieve good outcomes for young people and their families.Unrealistic deadlines, high case loads without proper support or supervision. Management not available for workers to debrief and talk through complex cases. Awful lack of support to deal with team issues and manager was not respected by most of the team due to her ignoring there was a problem and not being present in the team office.Long service seemed to count for nothing and hard workers ( all of the team) were not valued or appreciated.

Pros

Flexible working

Cons

Poor supervision

Support Worker position that allows you to meet new people regularly and is very rewarding

Meeting the public and being able to discuss their health and well being regarding their new born and to encourage new mothers and their family and friends to support them. To encourage breast feeding over bottle and to highlight the benefits. To signpost mothers and partner to join groups or be a part of other parents that keep them from feeling isolated. The joy in seeing the children grow strong healthy and very balanced, parents with support remember you and let you know your input had made a positive difference.

Cons

You feel like big brother is with you as every minute must be accounted for

Challenging environment to work in, poor management, training and lack of opportunities for progression.

This is a very challenging environment to work in due to poor management, training, resources and lack of opportunities for progression. Colleagues and team members are positive and supportive, however, this is impacted upon negatively by the issues listed above. Family support work is demanding and challenging, but is the most rewarding job in terms of supporting families through crisis points in their life and enabling them to make improvements and progress.
