Support Worker

Are you a passionate and caring Support Worker dedicated to helping people thrive in the community and their own homes?

Search Consultancy have a fantastic opportunity for a Permanent Support Worker to join a leading Learning Disabilities and Mental Health service to help provide care and support services for adults across the Inverclyde area.

The service is designed to meet the requirements of people with complex needs arising from their mental health issues and/or substance misuse issues. The service was set up as part of the redesign of mental health services within Inverclyde, shifting the balance of care into a community based provision. Most of the individuals the service supports have a moderate to severe mental illness and some have difficulties in relation to alcohol and drug misuse. Some of the individuals who are supported require assistance with their personal care and social functioning. The aim of the service is to promote a safe and secure lifestyle for service users while maximising their capacity for independence and reintegration into the local community.

Providing the highest standard of person centred support and care to the people within the care package, maintaining dignity and respect, enabling them to lead as independent lives as possible and realise their potential whilst ensuring own actions and behaviour comply with corporate policy and local procedures, statutory regulations and quality standards.
