Supported Living Solutions (NW) Ltd, believe that everyone has the right to live the life they want, both in their home and in their local community.

This Bolton service is a specialist supported living service and as a Community Support Worker, you will work alongside a group of individuals with Autistic Spectrum Condition, learning and sensory processing difficulties.

Positive Behaviour Support focuses on teaching new skills that reduce challenging behaviour and achieves meaningful outcomes for the people we support.

Following an Active Support model, our aim is to ensure that staff create and support every opportunity enabling individuals to participate and contribute to all aspects of daily living both at home and in the community. Our approach is always to focus on supporting people to do what they can do and not what they can’t do.

We are looking for someone who has a basic understanding of Autism, experiencing of supporting individuals with epilepsy is desirable, a full driving licence valid in the UK is also desirable (owning a car is not essential). We need someone with a flexible approach as the support can require you to be fully involved in fun in-house or community based leisure activities but may also require a very patient and calm approach to support through specific daily routines. Regular communication and planning with families is a key part of this role.

Our vision is to become one of the North West leading Supported Living Providers by working closely in partnership with the people we support, their families, carers, peers, health and local authority professionals and by providing staff that have the training, skills, knowledge, passion and commitment to make positive and meaningful differences to people’s lives.

Nothing less than 100% commitment to the people we support will be acceptable.

Shift hours are between: 07:00 – 22:00, and hours will be scheduled on a rota basis Monday - Sunday including.

Early (e.g. 07.00 – 15.00), Late (e.g. 15.00 – 22.00) and targeted shifts to support individual needs. Flexibility in working patterns is an expectation to ensure we can deliver the right level of support at all times.
