Community Buddy

Do you want a job where you can make a difference every day?

SUPPORT WORKERS in the community 


We are looking for Support Workers to work out in the Community with adults and children with a learning disability.  The team is going from strength to strength and we need to expand. We are looking for people who can work a mix of afternoons, evenings and weekends  either on a permanent basis or by joining our bank of casual workers.

It's no ordinary job and every day can be different. Most importantly it's about offering opportunities for people to experience things that many of us take for granted. Every day can be different, here are some examples:

  • Support with shopping
  • Going out for coffee/lunch/dinner
  • A visit to the pub, clubs, cinema, shows
  • Support with doing sport/visiting sporting events
  • Meeting friends

You could be supporting people on a 1 to 1 basis or within a group. We run the service 7 days a week and during the evenings. We are currently recruiting only for hours in the afternoons, evenings and weekends.

If you feel passionate about all people being given an opportunity to live life to the full then this type of job could suit you very well. In some cases previous experience is advantageous but for us it is much more important that you share our values and can demonstrate this.

If you think this sounds interesting and would like an informal chat call: Beth Smith on 01923 713633.

Application forms should be returned to or  to Jo Walker, Watford Mencap, The Old Town Hall, 105 High Street, Rickmansworth, Herts, WD3 1AN.

If you have any queries please phone our recruitment line on 01923 713623.
