The Red House:

The vision we share at the Red House is to be a safe, stable, caring, nurturing and fun environment where the experience is akin
to a large family home.

Part of Young Foundations, The Red House is a specialist provision for children and young people, who have a range of identified
complex and challenging needs such as Autism, Learning Disabilities, Mental Health Issues and other health needs.

We strive to be a containing environment with a therapeutic approach underpinned by an understanding of trauma.

We have a fierce determination to understand our children and young people and support them to make sense of their journey, to
heal and to step forward toward achieving their potential.

The Role:

As a genuinely caring and highly motivated Residential Support Worker you should embody our goals in improving the lives of our
children and young people in a residential setting.

As a key worker you will have the opportunity to support this progress and development of the child or young person assigned to

It is desirable for you to hold the relevant SVQ Diploma 3 / 4 qualification in Health and Social Care. However, without this
qualification we will also consider your application.
