FitzRoy Residential Support Services in Malvern provides care & support for young residents across two bungalows. Our aim is to provide a family environment, encouraging the people we support to lead a life of achievements no matter how big or small. We are seeking exceptional new Support Workers to join our friendly team – could this be you?
The service currently employs ten staff members supporting six people in each at present, and they have a mixture of learning disabilities and physical needs. We have on-site a porta cabin that caters for the people we support to use computers, and this has adaptations for communication too. The people we support enjoy cooking, baking, musical activities, swimming, day trips, and enjoying time gardening in the property’s large garden. The residents will also require support during external activities such as evening clubs, hydro-therapy sessions and care farms, so an applicant who enjoys swimming would be desirable.
