I have enjoyed working here I have many experience. It is suitable for me as I am deaf myself. It is a deaf environment base . The manager and staff are lovely we all work as a team. I love supporting my clients. I have been a carer nearly 8 years. My duties are promoting their independence, emotional, physical and social development. I give medication, support them with daily tasks. I do care plans.

A good place to work
Fairly paid and excellent training provided.
You also get to learn British Sign Language.

Due to the fact that the environment is of a caring nature, the people employed tend to also be very caring and supportive of their colleagues.

Awful and not what you would expect of a charity
This organisation is badly run, and has some unprofessional staff and incompetent management. I would not bother if you want job security or a company which respects their staff.

Not a good place to work.
I didn't a right lot of help when I volunteered for them.


I just collected money for them because they wouldn't give me other volunteering work.

disapointing, broken promises, scapegoated
I absolutely loved my job here, worked 110% even though the pay would't show for this.
I brought things to the service which improved the health and wellbeing of the PWS. Most of the team were lovely.

Even though was common knowledge that a senior member of staff was a bully and thoroughly tried to put me down at any moment.

Then sadly was scapegoated for the unthinkable and my job was taken away from me so the company 'wasn't sued' for their flaws.

I'm still suffering for PTSD.
Pros
Lovely residents, nice home environment, nice staff
Cons
Poor money, long hours, large workloads, sleepins

my Views
The hard work and look job.
I used to care for people who were Deaf with a learning disability

I would help them to wash and look after themselves.

I would help people with cooking their meals and shopping and budgeting.

I worked in supported living homes and residential homes.

I learned about autism, learning difficulties. I worked with both Deaf and hearing people.

The culture of the organization was normal- staff were helpful.

The hardest part of the job was dealing with people who had autism and who had challenging behavior - I found it difficult to calm them down.

The best part of the job was working with Deaf people as I was able to communicate.
Pros
People, hours, environment
Cons
I would have liked more hours

Disgraceful
Work at this place at your peril. They are only interested in money and nothing else. They do not care about the shop floor staff who work really hard or the people who matter the most...the service users. Its all about money and making sure paperwork is in place.
You spend the entire shift on the computer and spend no time with the service users

The money is shocking too considering you are working weekends and key days ie Xmas etc
Pros
Support stall and service users are great
Cons
Too many to mention
