Jobs & Volunteering
The Aldingbourne Trust cares about its staff – we believe that to provide fantastic support to our clients, our employees need to be treated well.
The two ladies we support aim to live fulfilling, independent lives. They have their own pace of life, which we support them with, although we always look for ways to bring them new opportunities and experiences do add to their quality of life. This means you will be supporting them in their own homes with all aspects of their daily living, as well as outings in the community, going to the beach, the cinema or simply going for a drive.
This role is a busy one requiring high levels of energy and resilience and the ability to work on your own. We embrace a “one team” ethos and employ people who are pioneering and who strive to be outstanding in their role to ensure that the emotional, social, medical and material needs of the people we support are recognised, assessed and met. In return we empower you to be the very best that you can be in this role and as a result we can continue to ensure both ladies remain at the very heart of everything we do.
