Job Advert Role Description

We are currently looking to grow our already established and dedicated team of support workers at our site near Preston. 

Mather Fold House (formerly part of Craegmoor) is a six bedded residential service in Higher Walton, Lancashire and has been specifically designed to enable adults with autism and other complex needs to live as independently as possible. Mather Fold House can accommodate male and female adults aged 18 years and over, but can also accommodate people who are 17 years and are going through transition from children’s services.

Located in the village of Higher Walton which is positioned between Blackburn and Preston, the service is close to the town centre and within walking distance of local amenities. It is also near to major bus routes, train stations and the M6 motorway which links it to major cities such as Manchester and Newcastle.

  • Do you believe that everyone is entitled to the very best care and support?
  • Do you want to make a lasting difference in people’s lives?
  • Do you want to support people to help them achieve their goals, dreams and aspirations?

We do and we are passionate about providing excellent care and support to individuals with learning disabilities, autism, Prader-Willi Syndrome or mental health conditions. As a support worker, you will have the opportunity to be part of 1000s of stories of inspiring care and support for our residents and service users.

As a support worker you will be supporting our residents with their day to day lives, encouraging them to live as independently as possible. You may get involved in exciting activities outside of the home too – our residents/service users participate in day trips, charity events and much more!

Our ideal support worker will:

  • Have a great sense of humour
  • Be reliable, friendly and caring to help our service users achieve their everyday goals (including personal care)
  • Be able to support in house activities and hobbies
  • Be attentive and inspire our service users to achieve more!
  • Be resilient and help manage some behaviours that challenge

Whilst drivers are able to take service users out and about, you don’t need to be a driver to work here – we employ many non-drivers too!

What we’ll give you:

  • A rewarding job, full of variety and opportunities for career development
  • Brilliant, ongoing training to help you achieve more
  • Support of an experienced and friendly team of colleagues
  • A range of salary sacrifice benefits, cashback rewards, pension options and much more!
  • Access to our Career Pathways, which will help shape your career with us – you can work towards goals and milestones that will take your career in whichever direction you wish
