Community Support Worker

Supporting people to live independently

There are a range of roles with different job titles which are all about supporting people to live independently, often following illness, and don’t involve personal care. 

You’ll usually have a number of individuals that you get to know very well. You may work in a residential home, or out in the local community. You could be working with people with substance misuse issues, a learning disability, or a mental health condition. 

A community support worker role may involve:

Sourcing help in and around the home

Signposting relevant groups, clubs, or activities

Offering information and advice on housing, benefits and social care

Organising transport 

Supporting a wider care team

    • Good listening and observational skills
    • The ability to provide someone with opportunities to learn
    • Being responsive and supportive
    • Patience and understanding

You could move into a senior support worker role and take on additional responsibilities which may include supporting and mentoring other members of staff as well as being responsible for the day to day supervision of the service.
