Friendship Care and Housing (Friendship) supports vulnerable communities, families and individuals. Valuing equality and diversity is central to our mission, communicating and sharing power with our customers, our staff and the wider community. Our goals are services tailored to people’s needs and preferences, support that helps people to live fuller lives and neighbourhoods that are better places to live.

We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated, innovative, flexible, person centred people to come and help support people live fuller enriched lives.

We are a small supported living home; our service users need assistance with every aspect of their lives. This may be helping them on trips out, maintaining, friendships in the community, to ensuring they get to appointments, general housekeeping, helping with personal hygiene or organising with them their next adventure.

If you have a range of hobbies and interests that may appeal to others, or just really enjoy working with people and have a good sense of humour, then this could be the job for you. Experience of supporting individuals with learning disabilities in a small residential setting and out in the community would be beneficial but not essential. More important is a willingness to listen and guide people that sometimes need thoughtful, caring and supportive assistance, along with an enthusiasm to support vulnerable individuals.

Reference Number: FCH247

Being a support worker means many things but the bottom line? It’s about supporting people who have disabilities to live a ‘quality’ life and receive the same respect that we all expect.

There has in the past been some bad press about care work but rarely any good press about some of the organisations that offer 1st class care and support to its tenants. Friendship Care & Housing are one of many organisations that do so.

Friendship is an organisation with almost 60 years’ experience of providing housing and support services.

What other job can you think of where you get paid to?

  • Go to the cinema/theatre/pub
  • Spend time talking to people
  • Think of imaginative ways for people to get involved in their local community
  • Help someone to learn a new skill
  • Go on holidays

Our staff does all of this and much more.

There are of course other aspects to the work; we support people with their personal care, running their homes, e.g. cleaning, paying bills, go shopping. We also have to maintain some records so a good command of English and basic numeracy skills are required.

Our support workers come from many different backgrounds - Ex-factory workers, shop workers, people with office backgrounds, and some of these people never thought they could or would ever do the work they are doing now.

Qualifications are not necessary – but a positive attitude towards disability, a caring personality, and lots of enthusiasm is.
