We are The Rose Road Association, a Registered Charity providing essential Care and support Services in Southampton.

We are seeking to recruit a Great Support Worker, someone with the right values and attitudes to work in our Overnight Respite facility in Southampton – could this be you?
You don’t need to have previous experience in this type of work, and you don’t need any particular qualifications, as we will provide all the necessary training to develop you to your full potential. You do need to be over 18 years for this role.
This important role provides support to our children and young adults staying overnight at our Respite facility to enable well-being and independence and provide parent carers with a break from caring.
Because the children and adults who stay with us are individuals, no two days are the same. One day you might be needed to assist with personal care (washing, dressing and feeding) or hoisting while on other days, you could be taking part in fun activities within or outside the home like soft play, swimming, watching movies in our purpose-built cinema, going bowling or eating out. It’s a really varied job that is hugely rewarding and makes a positive difference to the lives of local young people.
So, if you are someone who shares in our values, is committed to Quality and Standards, is Person Centred and committed to helping others, and believes in Teamwork, Trust and Respect, then we would love to hear from you.
