You’ll support people with any aspects of their day to day living that they struggle to do independently. It’s such a varied job working with such different people. You might provide advice, for example about housing options, you might help someone to learn life skills that will enable them to be more independent, for example cooking or managing their money.

You’ll definitely be a source of emotional support and a trusted friend so you might go places with the person you are supporting like a football match, the cinema, a local club or even on holiday. The people you work with might go to work and live independently which could mean you support several people or they might have more severe needs and require full time support. Working as a support worker means you’ll be helping people to live their best life, supporting them to do what matters and helping put a smile of their face.
