Details of Role: 

As part of our dedicated Outreach Services team, your role will involve supporting our adult service users in their homes or out and about in the community; working with them to help develop their social and cognitive skills as part of their rehabilitation programme.   Your care industry training and experience will be put to good use, helping individuals regain their confidence, learn new skills and redevelop old ones.  We are looking for caring, friendly and reliable individuals who are able to work independently with individuals on a one to one basis, but also flexibility as part of the overall outreach services team. 

Our Outreach Workers need to demonstrate initiative, enthusiasm, flexibility and excellent time keeping. Some personal care maybe involved in accordance with individual care plans but your primary focus will be to support individuals with completing everyday tasks that most of us take for granted - from doing the shopping, cooking and housework, to getting on the bus to the local library or leisure centre.

An awareness and/or understsanding of the sensory, cognitive and physical disability of a person who has sustained a brain injury or other similar condition such as stroke, dementia or mental health would be a distinct advantage.  The role can often be challenging and you will have the maturity and experience to be able to support those who have complex needs and behaviour problems. 

Our core services are delivered across a wide range including Bristol, Bath, South Gloucestershire, Wiltshire and North/North East Somerset.  A full driving license, motor insurance and use of own car is essential for this role.
