People who care
A learning disability support worker based in a day centre.
From admin to aerospace, Susan has had a wide variety of job roles. After relocating to North Yorkshire she needed a job which would work round her husband being away from home.
“When we moved here one of the mums at school recommended a job at a day centre but I’d never really considered working in care. I always assumed it wasn’t for me and didn’t think that I would be able to do it but it’s been wonderful. There are so many different people and it’s certainly never boring!”
Susan has completed extensive training which is still ongoing including a degree in mental health.
“The satisfaction I get from teaching someone to be as independent as they can be and making them laugh or smile is something I never got from my other roles. I absolutely love it, it was the best move I ever made and I’ve never looked back.”
