Assistant Support Worker - Spring Gardens
At Hightown, we`re a housing charity that builds homes and support people. In High Wycombe we provide high-quality care and support to six adults with learning disabilities between 8am and 8pm.
We are looking for a new Support Worker to join our team who have the right values, behaviours and attitudes to be the difference on a full time and part time basis.

About the role
