About the role
You will be working in our Supported Living service located in Ampthill.

We support them with the everyday things around their homes, such as cooking and cleaning, as well as leisure activities, education opportunities and skills for personal development.
People we support at this service enjoy attending Football matches, concerts, circuses and air shows. We support them to go on holidays, day trips and evenings out. You'll help the men to learn new skills, enabling them to become more independent and take control of their lives.
