Unfortunately, it is very disorganised, service users do nothing during their day. It's not rewarding. Some service users can be extremely aggressive, hit staff and we are not even allowed to protect ourselves. Some clients should be living in different places, as mental health issues take place. Management never announce any changes, they just do it without telling you.

It is inappropriate to comment on Salary for this as it was voluntary. But it gave me some good analytical, and networking skills which I have been able to apply and go to university. I am now looking forward to a career in law.

No work life balance, expect you to work illegal hours. No support from management. Very backwards in the care they deliver, restrictive practices, locks on everything! Residents not kept safe and not matched well with other residents in there home's
Support Worker/Carer (Former Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 2 February 2017
A typical day would consist of 1to1 or 2to1 work with your client, helping them with daily chores, hygiene & also interacting with the public with many of different activities. I became a man working there & really learned responsibility. Sad to have ever left. Great place with great staff & management
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Birmingham – 9 August 2016
Getting to know the service users is the most important thing to do in any service. Every day at work is interesting. the best part of the job is going home at the end of the day knowing you have made someone's life easier.
Team Leader (Current Employee) – Smethwick West Midlands – 12 January 2013
Each day in my work place is different, some days my job is very challenging and some days very rewarding. I have worked within this field for ten years now but am still learning, Autism is such a complex and interesting condition. I really enjoy working with people and get great satisfaction as i watch them progress and develop with the support and guidance i have provided.
