Spring into a new role!
We all need support, at times, with something.
Disabilities and abilities are not too different – they can be visible, and sometimes, they can be hidden. We enable people to better manage the challenges they face in their lives, by working with them to recognise and build upon their strengths. And often we do this by listening to them, really listening, and working out a plan of support to help. Read about our two opportunities below, where we have full or part time vacancies.

“The service brought me back into the light. They are my safety net. I am doing much better now – it’s been life changing!”
Stuart found himself homeless following an incident with a neighbour. Living in temporary homeless accommodation is always difficult especially with a complex mental health issue. Stuart also found himself involved with the criminal justice system. He felt alone and lost without anything familiar in his life.
Through Carr Gomm support Stuart was able to reduce his reliance on alcohol as a way of managing his mental health, establish a way of budgeting his money he could cope with and find a home that suited his wishes and needs.
Carr Gomm support practitioners worked with Stuart and supported him to do all this by building relationships, and working effectively with the other professionals in Stuart’s life to coordinate responses to the various challenges he faced
