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 really meaningful. At Mencap, we can give you that. You’ll have opportunities to develop as a person, colleague, leader and activist.

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

Job Advert
Would you like to make a significant impact on someone's life? We are looking for fun, dynamic and dedicated Relief Support Workers for our Service in Burgess Hill & outreach in the surrounding areas. 

Relief work gives you the option to work when you want to work. Shifts are rota based and will be spread across morning, afternoons, evenings and include sleep-ins. Flexibility is important as all our shifts will be spread across weekdays and weekends.

There are a number of things that are important to the people within the service -  one person we support said that they like to be involved with things within the house, go out with friends and listen to music – who doesn’t enjoy relaxing to their favourite artist? Furthermore, another person we support explained a number of things as being important to them, in particular, they have a real interest in all things arts & crafts – so a creative side would be a really positive.

The people we support require respect, patience and a proactive approach to supporting them. This patience will allow you to make a real difference to their lives. Do you think you have what it takes? 

As a Relief Support Worker, all you’ll need to have is a positive attitude and a desire to improve the lives of those with a learning disability. If you support the people within our service, we will support you with award winning training and progression opportunities throughout your career with us.

*An enhanced DBS will be required for the successful candidate (Paid by Mencap)
