We are currently looking for a Night Support Worker in Meldreth (South Cambridgeshire / North Hertfordshire boarder Nr Royston), where our Aurora Orchard Manor offers a supportive living and learning environment for young adults who have severe and profound learning difficulties and is one of the few services in the country that is also able to support those with complex health needs and associated difficulties.
Orchard Manor provides a transitional opportunity for individuals to move from education into adulthood with a focus on person-centred programmes to promote independence.
