Target Audience:

Calling all compassionate individuals who wish to make a difference! If your seeking meaningful work which embraces you for person you are and the skills you bring to the table and you're passionate about social care and want to contribute without committing to a live-in arrangement, our Live-Out Support Assistant program is tailored for you. 

No experience is required although experienced assistants will find we do care differently and embrace the transformative power of meaningful connections and relationships between both assistants and the people with learning disabilities we support.
