As a Support Worker in our Community Outreach Team you will work providing Community Support to other adults who live locally to the Crawley area.

Along with your general caring responsibilities (including some personal care and assisting those with physical disabilities or mobility issues) your role will include supporting with varied activities such as going out in the local community, supporting with shopping, attending local clubs or going on other fun days out!
