Befriender (Former Employee) – Sheffield – 10 May 2017
Great experience. I volunteered as a Befriender, managing my time around my studies to aid people with mental health problems and helping them with day-to-day care. This gave me the opportunity to interact with people and learn more about their struggles on a personal level, by visiting them in their homes and also aiding them and other carers on outings and day trips. While I was doing this, I was able to work alongside professionals and gain real experience and advice while in a practical work place environment. Full training given, including becoming a ‘Dementia Friend’ and Safeguarding
good work place for gaining experience & the best of training.

Former employee (Former Employee) – North West. – 4 May 2016
No real support, ineffective management who take no responsibility for the effects of their lack of support, dreadful bullying behaviour from senior staff and managers and support given to colleagues who are allowed to cherry pick what they want to do leaving all other work to be picked up by their overburdened workmates. Truly poor, avoid.
Mental Health Support Worker (Current Employee) – Chorley, ENG – 28 December 2015
A progressive and truly *person-centered* support company. It's been an absolute pleasure to work for Making Space. Most enjoyable aspect of the job? - working with a dynamic and flexible team of colleagues who share the desire to deliver the best level of care in which we can achieve.
support worker (Former Employee) – Making space Liverpool – 21 December 2015
Confidentuality is breeched alot which I feel that is un necessary when staff members are suspended. Ridious when other members of staff are in the know before the actual person. More worried about files being upto date than the individuals whom they are ment to support.
