Working with us

Our children and young people need consistent role models in their lives, which is where you come in.  This isn’t for everyone though and there will be challenges along the way.  That said, the rewards of seeing the young people progress under our care is priceless and the sense of achievement makes the challenge really worthwhile.

We’ll be with you every step of the way and constantly reflect, adapt and improve to be the best employer we possibly can be.  We’ll help you continue your professional development and ensure you have everything you need.

Our young people can be going through an upsetting time, therefore they may express this through challenging behaviours – as a children's residential support worker you’ll be given comprehensive training to understand Positive Behaviour Support and how to deescalate and handle any situation.

You’re not just joining a home, you’re becoming part of a family.  Our children’s homes work in tandem with our Witherslack Group schools and our dedicated Clinical Services Team. We all work together; supporting, encouraging and reflecting, to ensure every child and young person thrives with us.
