Position Information:

Support/Care Workers

Support workers help aged and people with disability with a range of daily tasks. These include personal hygiene facilitation, mobility support, shopping tasks, food preparation, housework tasks, and the coordination of social events.

They help people living with different physical disabilities and mental health needs to live their lives more independently and support them to reach their potential by providing both physical and emotional support. The role of support worker is so varied – each person has unique needs, which makes the job unique too.

The role is primarily focused on enabling and supporting people to live their lives as independently as they can.   At Enable All we support people with a diverse range of needs, including learning disabilities, autism, physical disabilities, acquired brain injuries and mental health needs.  As a support worker, you may find yourself working in people’s own homes, in health and social care settings such as supported living services or care homes, and out in the community.

What are the responsibilities of a support worker?

There are many roles and responsibilities of a support worker, including:

  • Providing physical support which may include helping with household tasks and personal care.
  • Providing emotional support for an individual and their families.
  • Supporting and helping with health care needs, including routine checks or administrating medication.
  • Encouraging and supporting the development of personal skills through hobbies and interests.
  • Teaching life skills, such as shopping, using public transport and paying for bills.
  • Working with other healthcare professionals to ensure that all care needs meet the highest possible standards.
  • Facilitating social engagement and promoting networks through the Enable All Peer Mentoring Program.

Making friends is often difficult for the people we support, and so a key responsibility of support work is promoting and planning meaningful days. This can be supporting people to enjoy their hobbies and interests, helping them to get involved in community groups, or encouraging them to learn a new skill like cooking or painting. For many people we support, communication is not easy. An important aspect of the job is understanding how the person communicates and how others can best communicate with them.

Why become an Enable All support worker?

Being a support worker can be a very rewarding job. Even though the role can be hard and often challenging, making a positive difference to someone’s life and helping them become more independent brings feelings of accomplishment and satisfaction. It’s a great career choice for those who enjoy a varied job role and lots of interaction with others.

Some of the best parts of the job are sharing new experiences together, creating new memories and celebrating successes. You’ll enable people to overcome their fears and challenges whilst helping them to build confidence and self-esteem.
