Diverse Abilities, the only charity in Dorset that supports children and adults with profound physical and learning disabilities, and their families, is giving the Dorset community the opportunity to start 2015 by making a difference and supporting adults with disabilities in the local area.
Supported living allows adults to live as independently as possible in their own home and make everyday choices with the 24/7 support of a dedicated team. The number of adults currently supported by the charity’s supported living team is 37. This will continue to increase this year and therefore demand for more support assistants and team leaders to provide care for adults with disabilities will also increase.
Diverse Abilities is hoping that enthusiastic, career hungry and passionate local people come along to its next recruitment event on Saturday 17 January (9am-1pm) or Wednesday 21 January (4.30-6.30pm) at the charity’s head office – Unit C, Acorn Business Park, Ling Road BH12 4NZ.
Lee Brady at Diverse Abilities said: “Those we support often require one-to-one support, up to 24/7, and we urgently need to recruit to offer our service to more adults with disabilities. The supported living service we provide is crucial and as the demand for this provision continues to increase, new members of staff are required.”
At the recruitment event, attendees will have the opportunity to speak with representatives from the supported living service, find out what it is like to work for Diverse Abilities and meet a number of adults currently supported by the charity.
