Learning Disability Supported Living

You could choose to join our enthusiastic team of support workers at one of our supported living services.   

On the swing

Based on positive outcomes and 25 years of experience in supporting individuals with Learning Disabilities, this service offers an alternative to residential care and empowers individuals to live the life they choose.

The type of support they receive is controlled by them and delivered by our highly trained support workers. Personalised support plans are developed based on an individual’s interests, priorities and skills. We support with personal care needs, managing finances, finding education or work, and leisure activities.

Our Learning Disability Supported Living service supports individuals to:

  • Be the person they want to be 
  • Build confidence and achieve life goals 
  • Be a part of their community 
  • Make friends and form relationships 
  • Move on to even more independent accommodation 

This can be in a variety of settings, dependent on a person’s needs, circumstances and goals, but they could include any of the following: 

  • Independent living – individuals can choose to live independently in their own home with as much or as little support as they need.  
  • Shared living – we support individuals who might want to live independently too but aren't yet ready to live alone. Individuals have their own space but benefit from socialising with other like-minded people, sharing the communal spaces and sharing the costs of household bills. 
  • It’s a rewarding job looking after people in your local community delivering a good service for Home Support Matters.

  • Having only worked for Home Support Matters for two months now, the support and help I've received from colleagues at head office and the front-line carers I've had the pleasure of working with has been so incredible and made me feel so welcome to the company.

  • 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.
    Emma Y, Care Coordinator
  • 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.
    Kerry-Anne B, Great Yarmouth Care Worker
  • I enjoyed my induction training, everyone on the course was really nice, Hannah and Fiona were lovely and are brilliant trainers.
    Danielle K, 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 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.
    Cheryl B, 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.
