In 1995 Lifeways opened its first location for people with complex needs. Over 25 years later and we've grown to become the UK's largest supported living specialist and are proud to help almost 5,000 people to live more fulfilling, independent lives.
Our commitment is to provide extraordinary support that creates life-changing outcomes for people with complex needs. We do this through our stability, our local teams, our strong relationships, and our shared focus on quality and reassurance.
Are you looking for a rewarding job where no two days will be the same? Change someone's life today and make a positive change to your own! No experience is necessary, as we are looking for people with the right values and attitude.
Whether you're new to supporting people or have years of experience, you will get the training and support you need through our learning and development programme.
Lifeways is one of the UK's leading providers of support services for people with diverse and often complex needs in the community, supported living and residential settings.
Your job as a Support Worker is to ensure our service users lead valued and fulfilling lives, helping them to reach their potential and achieve to the best of their ability. You may support them going to work or college, do personal tasks, household jobs or enjoy their favourite hobbies & interests. You will communicate with family members, friends and the professionals who all work together to help them live independently and achieve their ambitions.
Our support workers are very important to us and are an essential part of our service. If you have previously worked within a similar environment or if you believe you have the skills to complement the service we provide, we would love to hear from you.
Lifeways offer career development, local work, induction training, regular refresher training, supervision and employee recognition. Previous experience is an advantage but is not essential as training is provided. All applications will be subject to DBS checks and references.
