Forensic Support Worker
Pioneering Independence Southampton is a company that offers bespoke support in the community to individuals with Learning Disabilities, Mental Health Issues, Challenging Behaviour, Autistic Spectrum Disorder and Forensic Backgrounds within their own homes.
We have some exciting opportunities available for enthusiastic and motivated people with a passion for improving the lives of others. We have vacancies for full time, part time positions, with opportunities to progress. While previous experience in a similar field is desirable, comprehensive training is provided and therefore we welcome applicants who have no experience but who share our belief in providing the highest standards of support and are eager to learn.
The service is delivered within a supported living model and is designed to meet the individual needs of the people we support. The role of a support worker is to assist with all daily living tasks, building and maintaining relationships, accessing education and employment opportunities and partaking in community based social activities.
