Support Workers- Omagh
Due to continuous growth, we have opportunities in our Sperrin Supported Living Service in the Omagh area.
Supported Living offers the people we support the opportunity to live where and how they choose – in a home of their own or with people they choose to live with. We work with housing providers to make this possible.
Houses are based in local communities and our teams of Support Workers follow individuals’ support plans to provide people with the type of support they need during the day and, if necessary, at night. This means that the people we support can do things in their local community – like going to the leisure centre, using the bus, shopping and going to church – and do as much as they can for themselves, like cooking, shopping, budgeting and personal care.
