There has never been a more exciting time to join Halton Borough Council.

We are a dynamic service, supporting Adults with Physical, Sensory, Learning Disabilities and Dementia in some innovative and award winning ways. We are passionate about person centred support and take pride in the quality of activities that we are able to offer: enabling meaningful engagement in a wide range of opportunities.

We also run some more traditional groups in the community, focusing on developing and maintaining living skills, supporting people who may have behaviour that can challenge or offering therapeutic and social value in activities such as The Samba Band, Craft production and PMLD groups.

The role of our Support Worker will:

  • Provide appropriate physical, emotional or intellectual support to people using services that will enable them to fulfil their aspirations as determined through the individual planning process.

Halton Community Services has radically changed how people who use its services are supported; the whole approach is based on an enabling empowering and in control model of support, caring for people is the golden thread that runs through the service, and we believe that if we do care we should give people real opportunities to learn new skills and maintain existing ones.

Halton has amenities, attractions, and activities in abundance. The area offers endless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, with three canals and miles of footpaths right on our doorstep.
