Do you want to deliver care and support in an environment like no other and have a blast at the same time?! Can you provide the right attitude and motivation to make a difference in our service users lives daily?
We provide support for adults aged 18 + that have learning difficulties who may have some associated behaviours perceived to be challenging. We are located over 2 bases in the heart of Hinckley. The day service runs from 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday but we also provide PA support evenings and weekends. Achieve With Us is a long established business that is now a part of the Potens group. Our activities focus on making and maintaining friendships, life skills, increasing independence and having fun!!!!
What will I be doing?
We operate a day service from 9 to 4 Monday to Friday. Here we offer varying activities including art and crafts, dance, zumba, football, tennis, swimming, gym, cooking. We also go on day trips and short breaks. Achieve with Us need staff that will be willing to take part in all of these activities, not just be a spectator. You don’t necessarily need to possess skill in these areas, just endless amounts of enthusiasm!!! We have some 1:1 clients but mostly we have one staff member to three clients.
Clients who access the PA support will decide their own activities but mostly like to socialise in the pub, go to the cinema or attend quiz nights etc
Our purpose – to provide a family oriented, social experience within Hinckley where clients feel a valued member of the community and have the chance to make and maintain friendships. We try to ensure that they learn new (or keep existing) life skills and maximise their potential and independence. However above all we have fun and lots of it!!!
