About Mencap

At Mencap we work in partnership with people with a learning disability. We do this by providing high quality, flexible services that support people, including young adults, to live as independently as possible in their own homes and in the community.

Everyone wants a purposeful job - to do something meaningful. At Mencap, we can give you that. You will have opportunities to develop as a person, colleague, leader and activist.

You’ll make new friends and feel inspired to reach your potential. We will ask a lot of you - but you’ll get back so much more. With us, it is never ‘just a job’.

In return for your hard work and passion, we can give you real meaning and purpose in your work.

Are you looking for a relief support worker role minus the personal care aspect?
 
We are currently seeking a support worker to join our team in Stowmarket. Here we have a row of two and three bed semi-detached cottages that are home to the people we support. You will be supporting nine individuals.
 
Some of their favourite things to do are; going in to town; shopping; going to the pub and having their friends round to visit. They are very independent and have very active social lives. 
 
As they like to live as independently as possible the support they require is more around prompting; encouragement and supporting the individuals to make their own choices. You will also be supporting with day to day things like finances; household duties such as cleaning; and to prepare and cook healthy meals. 

They would love someone who is friendly; sociable; and likes to get involved.

Flexibility is a must as you will need to be available to work across various shifts to include; days, evenings, sleep-ins and weekends.
