Reports to: Registered Cluster Manager, Senior Supported Living Worker
This job is important because:
You will enable the people we support to lead fulfilling lives based upon their personal support needs. You need to work to the standards set internally (by Hft) and externally (for example, by the Care Quality Commission), doing all you can to make sure that the people we support and your colleagues come to no harm and that the people we support are satisfied with the level of support they receive. You will achieve this by communicating with individuals and by following the underpinning principles of Person Centred Active Support (PCAS):
As we provide 24/7 support you need to be able to work shifts, including weekends, some nights and Bank Holidays. You will also be required to accompany people we support on holidays and attend training courses and other activities.
These are the qualities and behaviours that Hft support staff must have.
The first four areasare standard across Hft, the final, person-centred, area is to suit the particular service, and the people it supports, for this particular vacancy.
Communication – we need people who
Respect – we need people who
Cares About – we need people who
Creative Thinking – we need people who
Person Centred ‘must haves’ – we need people who
