About the Service:

Kennington Support Service provides supported living services for adults who have learning disabilities or who are autistic.

We provide support for up to six people living within three self-contained properties in Kennington. This service is specifically designed to support people who have learning disabilities or who are autistic to live and engage in their local community, as part of the ‘transforming care agenda’.

We aim to excel as a specialist provider of quality care and support, ensuring the people we support are at the heart of everything we do.

We support people to make choices and express their individuality. Personalisation is not a tick box exercise for us but is fundamental to how we deliver our mission every single day of the year.

Scope of the Job

Working in partnership with our consultant behaviour analysts and multi-disciplinary team you will lead, mentor and support your team to implement the support needed to maximise choice, independence and control. This will include ensuring that support plans are relevant and responding to the needs of the individuals, that partnerships are promoted to support their social and health needs and the team are accessing the right training and development in order to deliver the best possible support. In addition, you will create and maintain an environment that promotes collaborative working and facilitates the use of sound judgment and creative solutions to enable both the people we support and team members to achieve their goals and develop and progress individually.

About the Company
