Molesey Link Assistant
Community Support Services
Hours as required - 4/5 hours - initially on a Friday
Salary £10.09 - £10.62
Can you be flexible in your approach? Do you have a creative and enthusiastic nature? Do you have experience working with people with disabilities? Do you want to make a difference? If this sounds like you, read on?
Our Cobham Link programme provides support to those with mild to moderate learning disabilities, who want to be as independent as possible. The group is involved with a variety of activities such as allotment gardening, choir, drama and money skills.
Due to the success of this, we are starting a Molesey Link and we need a support assistant who can work alongside the Molesey Link Facilitator.
As you would imagine, being part of this new Molesey Link Service requires strong communication and organisational skills, as well as dedication, enthusiasm and energy.
What is special about this role, is that you will be able to help develop and implement a programme to meet the physical, emotional and personal needs of those in our group with a low to moderate learning disability. What you do will make a real difference to people’s lives
You will be creative, committed and enthusiastic. You will have,
- a good standard of education
- experience working with people with disabilities
- knowledge of community care
- and the ability to produce reports and maintain social care records.
The Service will be initially on a Friday but could potentially expand in the future and you would be working 4 hours a day. It would be great if you could be flexible in the hours you can work each week. On a Friday there may be the need to work 5 hours depending on the daily programme. This service may also expand.
We are proud of our commitment to support our older and more vulnerable residents through the community support team. This group of committed and inspiring individuals come together to offer our residents a huge variety of care and support. For example,
- Meals on wheels
- Community alarm and telecare services
- Community transport
- Relief carers scheme
- Independent living centre
- And specialist groups supporting those with Parkinson’s and those recovering from a stroke.
