This indispensable Welsh charity is looking for an understanding and determined Support Worker to join the team at their purpose-built supported living service, which supports and assists people with complex mental illness to regain their independent living skills, including building positive relationships and feelings of security, personal finance skills, and the self-management of their own mental and physical health, so that they can regain confidence and re-join the community.
