Ecclesbourne Lodge is home for people with complex difficulties and challenges that require specialised 'person centred' support in a caring yet productive environment. Residents are able to learn practical life skills and take part in a range of community and home based activities, enabling their progress and transition towards a more independent life.
We are looking for patient and understanding staff to support our service users within the residential setting and in accessing the community and local activities i.e shopping, swimming as much as possible. You will assist service users with all aspects of their personal care and development and promote choice and independence at every opportunity.

- A valid current driving licence
- An ability to identify and undertake any training necessary to develop within the role
