Who will you be supporting?

Hi, I am shortly going to be living in my own home in Herne Bay, Kent and will be supported by SeeAbility.

Experience supporting a person like me, an Autistic lady with mild Intellectual Developmental Disability, and some complex health needs, would be a strong advantage.

I am looking for calm, assertive Support Workers with a great sense of humour to join my team. You need to support me to lead the life I want and to encourage me to be gradually more and more skilled and confident.

Whilst I need a quiet and happy environment in my home, I like to do activities. I really enjoy shopping in the supermarket, but I like the simple things in life. 

I would love for people to join my team who have the same interests. Being kind, dependable but also assertive to understand when I want to have my own space. I have autism and sometimes my behaviour can be challenging, but that should not stop me doing the things I love and leading an active life.

You will encourage me to learn life skills and gain independence but that is something everyone needs at times. I ask for your patience, confidence and can see the value in small gains. You will follow coaching from my behaviour support person and are willing to help when needed we will get along just fine!

You will work with me and provide care and support, with my complex needs and behaviours that can challenge. These can be physical and emotional, so being resilient, open-minded, and non-judgemental is essential. In addition, experience of those who have transitioned from an ATU setting to supported living provision would be to your advantage.

Responsibilities

  • You will provide direct support when displaying behaviours to enable them to take part in a wide range of activities.
  • You will ensure good working practice including understanding and awareness of health and safety.
  • You will promote independence and develop life skills, whilst helping with all tasks necessary to ensure positive life experiences.
  • You will work positively with other agencies, parents, carers, and other services to ensure person-centred approach.
  • You will contribute to the development of records and support plans and become a keyworker when needed.
  • You will support and keep a clean-living environment catered to her individual needs.
  • To take part in regular and ongoing training relevant the person you will support's needs.

Safer Recruitment and Diversity

SeeAbility safeguards and promotes the welfare of the young people and adults we support. Therefore, we collaborate with successful candidates to complete appropriate vetting checks prior to joining.

SeeAbility is committed to promoting equality, encouraging diversity, and embracing inclusion among our workforces. We want our workforce to be truly representative of all sections of society and the people we support.
