Do you like to help people reach their full potential? Be the Difference: Join Us as a Care Assistant!

We believe that each person must be at the centre of their world, and of the support and care they may require to lead life to the full in their own way.

We recruit based on values – you do not need to have experience, as we provide all the training required! 

About Us:

The Frances Taylor Foundation provides a comprehensive array of social care and support services, all rooted in a person-centred approach. We operate across Liverpool and Merseyside, Brighton and Hove, and Greater London.

Our services have a rich history. In the 1980s and 1990s, as the UK transitioned from large institutions to smaller community-based care for people with learning disabilities, we were at the forefront. We've continued to evolve, modernising our offerings to meet the changing needs and preferences of those we support. Some of our services are housed in brand new facilities, reflecting our commitment to innovation and understanding the unique aspirations of individuals. If you believe in personalised care and are ready to make a meaningful impact, we’d love to have you join us.

About the Role:

As a Support Worker, you'll join a committed team that delivers high-quality care and support. This pivotal role involves:

  • Assisting residents with daily living activities such as personal care, administering medication, and mealtime support.
  • Organising and encouraging daily activities that contribute to residents' well-being, enhance their autonomy, and preserve their dignity.
  • Offering companionship and positive reinforcement through meaningful interactions and active engagement with residents.

About St Marys:

St. Mary's Home offers a supportive living environment for 40 people with learning disabilities, spread across seven flats. Each flat has its own kitchen, dining, bathroom facilities, and living room, with specialised equipment to meet diverse needs. Additionally, there are two rooms for short-term stays. The residents vary in age and levels of independence. We encourage everyone to engage with the wider community and develop their independence. Some residents work, attend college, or participate in clubs, while others require support to access the community. We also provide care for individuals with complex needs, including those with physical disabilities, sensory impairments, and health conditions like epilepsy, diabetes, or dysphagia. Our trained staff administer prescribed medications and are skilled in procedures like PEG feeding.

St. Mary's Home has a "Good" rating from the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as of April 2023. Our holistic approach focuses on helping residents lead happy and fulfilling lives. We prioritise happiness and well-being and aim to provide personalised, person-centred care. Residents are encouraged to be involved in daily activities, such as planning and preparing meals and participating in leisure activities, to create a warm, engaging atmosphere where everyone feels valued and at home.
