You would make a positive difference to someone’s life when they are faced with physical, practical, social, emotional or intellectual challenges. You need to have the right values and behaviours developing competences and skills to provide high quality compassionate care and support. Working with people, feeling passionate about supporting and enabling them to live a more independent and fulfilling life is a rewarding and worthwhile job that provides excellent career opportunities.
