What does a Support Worker do?

A typical day

Support Workers (up to 30 hours per week)

For Encompass Support Workers, every day really is different, with variety being more the rule than the exception.

Much of what our Support Workers get involved in is driven by the people we support, and in helping to ensure they are able to live with as much independence and choice as possible.

Common tasks include supporting people to: – get out and about, take part in hobbies and leisure activities, prepare food – and enjoy eating it!; get ready in the morning, including support with personal care and hygiene; achieve goals identified in support plans, such as gaining work experience, or learning to use public transport; take medication or attend hospital appointments; manage money and bills; carry out household chores; plan holidays – and sometimes support people to take them; socialise with friends, or visit family; and of course, to live the best life possible!

Throughout all of this, the Person Centred Approach helps ensure that the people we support remain at the centre of everything we do.
