We have a high staff ratio which enables an individualised approach to promote wellbeing, independence and access to activities in the wider community. A large part of the support you will be providing is developing the responses, communication, understanding and social interactions of the people we support for which full training and support is provided to aid the development of your own skills and approaches.
