About us: 

Camphill Milton Keynes Communities is a charity providing holistic person centred support for adults with learning disabilities and autism. We support our residents in all aspects of their daily lives, and believe that each person should be appreciated and accepted for their unique abilities.  

About the role:

Our Support workers play a key role in enabling residents to achieve their goals and aspirations through their ongoing development.

The duties are varied and no two days will be the same. However, as a general guide, duties may include some support with personal care needs and medication as well as help to take part in a wide range of special interests and activities that support resident’s health and wellbeing such as cooking, arts and crafts, watching the footie, musical events, shopping trips and social occasions.

It is important that you can demonstrate a flexible approach to work as you will be required to cover a weekly rota, which includes evenings, weekends, sleep-ins and Bank holidays.

About you: 

You don’t need any qualifications as a full induction plus professional training will be provided. 

The most important thing is a caring attitude, compassion, genuine interest in people and willingness to work in accordance with our Mission and Vision Statement.

Why join us?
