What is a support worker?

Support workers help people to live their lives to the fullest through promoting independence and assisting them when needed. As a support worker, you will work with lots of people with different physical disabilities or mental health requirements, bringing plenty of variety to the role.

Being a support worker is both challenging and rewarding. You’ll spend your days helping people with daily tasks, such as shopping and managing their finances, enabling them to make decisions, and supporting them with socialising.
