Not only do Residential Support Worker keep the young people safe, but as the daily care provider they also make a fundamental contribution to their care, learning and development. Residential Support Worker pro-actively for each young person’s needs, rights and views and ensure that these are met. They also make certain that each young person’s individuality, difference, and diversity are always appreciated and that our young people are provided with equal opportunities and are not discriminated against.
Residential Support Workers keep encourage each young person to be involved in all aspects of their care. This will involve skill development, problem solving and assessment of risk, while being mindful of their individual capabilities. Through a consistent approach to care our young people acquire self-esteem and resilience, as well as self-knowledge and improved general well-being.
Residential Support Workers also work with each young person’s parents and families, as appropriate, recognising that they are the young person’s first and most enduring carers and that our role is as a partner in each young person’s care. To keep our young people safe it is imperative that all information about our young people is always kept appropriately confidential.
