Empowering customers to live rewarding and happy lives. That’s when it hits home.

We have a fabulous opportunity for you to join our awesome team in our sparkly new service in beautiful Liskeard!
 
We support our brilliant customers who have a variety of support needs – anything from mental health to alcohol or drug use, acquired brain injury to hoarding. Our customers live in Liskeard in a large Victorian 6 bed property with shared facilities and an onsite-office, or in the community in East and North Cornwall receiving outreach support.

 We help our customers with independent living skills and self-management of health and wellbeing. This could include supporting customers with maintaining their accommodation, managing domestic tasks, managing their finances and budgeting, accessing employment, education and training, and attending health appointments – so no two working days are ever the same!
 
About our team

You’ll be working alongside our fabulous team, who are super passionate about supporting customers to reach their goals and celebrating their achievements.  

To us we’re not just a team we’re a ‘work family’. Our manager is Gareth, who has been with Home Group for 11 years. Gareth’s little side-kick is his ‘Jackapoo’ Dolly and they can often be found hiking around the beautiful south coast of Cornwall together, especially on the beach! There are 9 of us in the team and we don’t just love to support our customers, we’re there for each other too! Among the team, you’ll be joining Lesley who’s been with us around a year and a half, who’s also a dog-owner and loves her holidays in the sun. There is also a new colleague joining us so you won’t be the only newbie!    
 
Working hours 

You’ll work on a rota basis between the hours of 9am – 7pm and take your turn working days, evenings and weekends. We need you to be flexible to meet the needs of our customers, but we aim to give you the time you need to spend time doing the things that matter to you! 
 
About you
You’re passionate and motivated to help vulnerable people make positive and lasting changes to their lives. You’ll impress us with your ability to work on your own initiative, positively influencing people from all different backgrounds.  You will have some experience in safeguarding, risk assessments, confidentiality, support plans, alongside working collaboratively.

You’ll help change our customer’s lives (and our services) for the better by undertaking risk assessments, support planning, goal setting and regular reviews. You’ll create bespoke and personalised support plans with and for your customers.  Each plan will look to meet our customer’s individual needs and aspirations, making sure they meet safeguarding and confidentiality requirements. You’ll also have responsibility for coordinating our support workers, apprentices and volunteers, and working collaboratively with external agencies, to assess and engage support for our customers. 

We empower our customers to develop the independent living skills they need, to successfully move on. Together we’ll make a difference!
 
To make sure that we keep our records straight, and customers safe, it's really important that you are technologically savvy (or at the very least not a technophobe!) 
 
To make sure our customers are well supported, it’s important that you have worked in a supported housing, outreach support or a similar role before. Don’t worry, we won’t drop you in the deep end, we’ll help you to understand how things work at Home Group!
 
As this is a community based role and you will be undertaking some outreach work, you’ll need to travel around to spend time with your customers. You could do this role using public transport, or if you drive and have access to a car that would also be amazing! We pay your expenses to cover this use!
 
When you join, you’ll need to have a valid Enhanced Check under the Disclosure and Barring Service. The great news is that we will pay for that to be done if you don’t have a transferrable one.
