Oliver McGowan - Autism and LD Awareness training

"Home Support Matters has advanced training and support for colleagues and customers with all learning disabilities"

The Oliver McGowan Mandatory Training enables the health and social care workforce to better support people with a learning disability and people with autism.

The Health and Care Act 2022 introduced a requirement that regulated service providers ensure their staff receive training on learning disability and autism which is appropriate to the person’s role.   

We rolled out the Autism E-Learning to everyone, which if you haven’t completed yet please ensure you do.

Alongside this, you also need to watch the Oliver McGowan learning disability and autism video which will give you an understanding of why this is a mandatory training requirement.

Our bespoke training will be coming in mid-2023 and is something we are proud to implement and offer across our business to all our colleagues.

  • I love working for Home Support Matters. I’ve been here a year and I’ve already progressed in my job, moving from Care Worker to Care Co-ordinator in the short time I’ve been here. Colleagues are all friendly, helpful and very supportive.

  • I haven’t been happier than since I started working here, I’ve found my passion in helping others and it’s been an incredible experience ever since! It’s such a lovely team to work with, management values the employees and the training is brilliant. We get to go to different places and experience new working environments, meet new people and it’s simply great.

    Danielle K, Great Yarmouth Care Worker
  • I love working for Home Support Matters, every day I make a difference to people’s lives and it’s very rewarding. My hard work never goes unnoticed, and I’m always being praised by both customers and branch colleagues. I’ve come so far in such a short amount of time with all the training and support from other colleagues in the field.
    Danielle M, Great Yarmouth Care Worker
  • It's a huge responsibility, supporting a customer when they are at their most vulnerable. But you’re part of a team of skilled colleagues, and with advice just a phone call away, you’re never alone and you know that you are making a positive improvement to people's lives.
    Ian R, Lowestoft Care Worker
  • I love working for Home Support Matters as we help so many people that need help in their own home and enable them to remain independent. I love how it makes me feel and I know I make a difference to the people we help.
