Residential Childcare Worker
An average day consists of working within a small team to support the Children and Young People looked after by the Local Authority. As a member of the team, it is my responsibility to ensure they are supported to attend school, appointments, contact, statutory meetings and any other scheduled events. I work with the C&YP on both a one-to-one basis, and within a group setting - and do so in a positive, energetic manner with the aim of providing a safe, stimulating environment within the home. I also work with the team to complete tasks and chores around the home, cook/prepare meals, run errands and keep the home in good general condition. I believe that all children and young people should be at the centre of, and fully involved in, all decision making processes around their education, well-being, and life in general.
