The Children we care for.
We are looking for residential support workers to work in one of our Childrens homes which provides accommodation for /Children and Young People aged between 7 to 18 years old. Our young people have complex needs which may include Emotional Behaviour Disorder (EBD), Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD), Oppositional Defiance Disorder (ODD), and Complex Associated Difficulties. The home is open 52 weeks per year.
We strive to develop an environment which has a therapeutic and nurturing approach to working with Children and Young People. We accept children and young people with a diverse range of social, emotional and behavioural needs. Consequently we understand there will be a range of behaviours displayed.
We understand that behaviour is driven by feelings affected by experience, and believe that young people can change and come to terms with their difficulties, eventually being able to take a fuller part in their adult life.
We believe that a clear structure can control the symptoms of difficult behaviour, but we recognise that we need more than this to make sustainable changes.
Structures such as placement planning meetings, one to one working, key working sessions and care plan targets help create an environment where the young person is supported in their development via a needs driven approach.
