Care and Support Services for Adults
There are very few careers that give people such satisfaction as a career caring for others. We’re looking for values-driven, passionate people to join our day centre teams across the county as well as our 24/7 respite centre team in Beaconsfield. Our reablement teams are also expanding and are looking for compassionate people to help people remain independent at home.
In the community
It is hard to beat great company. Throw in a hot lunch, some fun and a smile or two and you have got a memorable day.
Our opportunities centres, located across Buckinghamshire, offer all of these.
From Buckingham to Beaconsfield, our centres have been designed to a high standard and are purpose-built – but it is the inside that counts and our teams have both the experience and passion to make our visitors feel at home during their time with us.
We also offer a respite service – based in Beaconsfield – for clients with physical, and/or sensory disabilities and learning disabilities.
Open 24 hours a day every day of the year – Seeleys House creates valuable time away. It also means a break for parents or carers too.
We know how important it is for people to remain independent in their own home.
Our ‘at home’ services gives our clients a helping hand with everyday tasks, support after a spell in hospital, as well as removing any worries they may have with their laundry.
We provide three services:
- A reablement service, helping people to regain independence after a stay in hospital
- A home care service, offering a friendly and caring team supporting clients within their own home
- A dedicated and professional community laundry service operating countywide
We believe with the right support, anyone can have a job. We run award-winning supported employment schemes right across Buckinghamshire.
We support clients to develop key skills which enable them to find paid employment. We do this via:
Who we help
We create work opportunities for people with:
- Learning disabilities
- Mental health problems
We have great links with many well-known companies too to help clients find the right job – our team overseeing this vital transition is called Back2Base.
Our teams build confidence and when clients are ready to move on, they offer personal support to help them find job opportunities which are right for them and match any aspirations.
Training & development
The people we support are very diverse and have different disabilities – this means we need to make sure our staff are well-trained in a variety of areas. When you join Buckinghamshire County Council, you can expect to receive a comprehensive training programme.
You’ll have the opportunity to develop as a social care professional and build a long-lasting and progressive career. From support worker to service manager right through to director of operations, anyone wishing to develop their career within social care can do so at Buckinghamshire County Council.
