Join us as a support worker

Huntercombe support workers work in fantastic teams with nurses, doctors and other experts to help people with mental health conditions, learning disabilities or brain injuries.

Support workers work closely with patients and residents, helping them with their daily routines, as well as supporting them with various activities and helping them work towards their individual goals and ambitions.  The compassion and care that they provide play a crucial role in the recovery and rehabilitation of people we care for.
