JOIN THE TEAM
We believe that vulnerable individuals, in common with every individual, have the right to control their own lives, within the everyday constraints of life.
We provide the help and support which can sometimes be considerable, needed to achieve this, and will actively seek to enable the individuals supported to gain more and more independence as their skills and competencies develop.
We wish to enable each person to have a sense of self worth, a positive self-image and a good understanding of others around them. We believe in treating others with dignity and respect at all times
Our philosophy is at the core of everything that we do which is why we know it is important to invest in all employees continuous professional development to give them the tools and resources to deliver care and support in a person centered way that ensures that individuals are in control. If you are interested in coming to work with us please look at our vacancies and get in touch.
Similarities and differences are the foundations needed to build a strong team
