Full-time or part-time
Dimensions is supporting six people to share a bungalow together. The bungalow is a registered care home service which is divided into two parts. The people we support enjoy going to day services, going on holiday, going for tea and cake and they also enjoy activities in the community. They also like cooking, gardening and enjoying time outdoors as well as Karaoke inside. Their families and friends play a big part in their lives so they also require support with maintaining those relationships.
Whether you have worked in healthcare, mental health, autism, or maybe you have a background in retail, cleaning and coaching, this could be the career for you. Dimensions recruit against values and not previous experience.
Dimensions is a leading social care provider in England and Wales, supporting people with learning disabilities and autism, and we are proud to be one of very few social care organisations that are accredited by the Great Places To Work programme.
