Are you passionate about supporting adults with Learning Disabilities and Autism?
The Community Team for people with a Learning Disability and Autism is committed to improving outcomes for the people we support. We adopt a person-centred approach to the work undertaken by the team. We are looking for individuals who will share our commitment and who are organised, creative, and skilled in communicating with adults with Learning Disabilities and Autism.
Because we're Bracknell Forest Council…
Below are a few recent quotes from the people we support and their families showing how we value people with a Learning Disability and Autism and the staff who work with them:
"I think the support you have offered this family has made the lives of all involved so much better. We truly believe if it had not been for you we would have honestly not been a family anymore as we would all have been broken with some major consequences. Just want to say THANK YOU! Your continued support means the world"
"I just wanted to thank you for the help and support you are giving me. The help you are giving me has made a tremendous difference and allowed me to have hope during stressful and frightening situations. It has made such a difference"
"My Social worker was very kind and friendly, she had a very nice manner and 'way about her' and was very helpful"
