Taking place at MEA House on Wednesday 10th June 2015 between 10am and 3pm, this open day aims to show potential employees in the north east what United Response does and stands for, as well as demonstrating that the role of a support worker is much more than just a job.

United Response is a unique organisation. Working with us is a chance to make a real difference to someone’s life, so we are looking for people who are passionate about helping us achieve our mission – to enable people with learning disabilities, mental health needs and physical disabilities to take control of their lives.

The video above shows the quality of the relationship that has developed between Alison and her support worker Jo over the past six years.

Find out what a career as a support worker is really like

The open day will include a range of demonstrations, networking opportunities and information, including:

  • Support worker case studies
  • Videos showing what we do
  • People we support talking about their experiences with United Response  
  • Best practice demonstrations on active support and person-centred approaches.

And refreshments will be provided!

If you haven’t worked in social care before, don’t let that put you off – experience isn’t always necessary. We provide a full induction and training programme, with lots of ongoing support, plus great benefits such as flexible working, a cycle-to-work scheme, childcare vouchers and an enhanced pension.

See you on Wednesday 10th June!

So, if you live in the Newcastle area and are curious about a career in social care, please do come along to MEA House, Ellison Place, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 8XS, and meet our friendly team in person.
