I'll admit, working at Leonard Cheshire was rough. Around the time that I arrived, we had a massive crisis in our upper management, which was barely resolved by the time I left, and we were frequently understaffed, but it definitely taught me a lot about the power of working well with others and raw graft.
Pros
lunch included
Cons
the hours were horrific.

While working for Leonard Cheshire, I always felt we were treated as one big family. We used to help the residents feel as normal and have as normal life as possible.

I learnt the values to life while working at Leonard Cheshire, I completed my NVQ level 2&3 in health and social care and the support was next to none.


The support from the management team was amazing at all times.


The hardest part of my job was seeing the residents struggling with everyday life, that we say take for granted

My role as a support worker at Leonard Cheshire Disability was very rewarding. I thoroughly enjoyed working for this company as it encouraged me to work in this sector once I am qualified. Staff were very supportive and I enjoyed working part of a team.
The hardest part of the job was working with service users who had no family or family that did not visit the service user. On many occasion I spent longer time that expected to keep them company.

The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I had helped that person whether it would be undertaking a small task, or assisting with personal hygiene.
Pros
Rewarding, great team to work with.
Cons
