They are a well-established company who have a proven track record in providing excellent "person centered" support to the people who have used their services over the last twenty years.

They have a passion for helping the people they support to reach their full potential and are always looking for people with the right values and qualities to join their highly motivated support team.

They need full and part time support workers to work with people with learning and physical disabilities who have additional or complex needs and require personal care.

In return they offer their staff induction training, a 24 hour help line, appraisal, supervision, and other forms of support and development.

Their unqualified rates start from £12,376 - £14,560 and they offer excellent promotion opportunities. Some of the qualities they look for are flexibility, initiative, good communication, teamwork and a passion for equality.

Some of the things they support people with are:

• Seeing their family and keeping in touch.

• Cooking tasty meals and trying different foods.
• Offering help on how to stay in good health.
• Assisting with the shopping or keeping their home tidy.
• Socialising and becoming active within the community.
• Paying bills or learning how to budget.
• Going to a college course, learning new skills.

All posts are covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders (exemption) act 1975. Section 7.2E of the Sex Discrimination Act applies to some of these vacancies.

They prefer drivers as it is beneficial but it is not essential. All applicants who have a disability and meet the minimum criteria for the post will be interviewed.

Interviews are to be held in the Garstang area.
