East Kent Mencap has a full time opportunity for a receptionist/administrative assistant to join our busy administration team. You will be the first point of contact for all enquiries by telephone and in person.
We are currently offering a full time contract for a senior support worker to work in our supported living service in Cliftonville. Previous experience is essential for this opportunity and you must be able to demonstrate a reliable and flexible approach to people with a learning disability. Our service includes community access for the tenants that we support.
East Kent Mencap is looking to recruit two support workers (full time and part time contracts available) to join our rapidly expanding Supporting Independence Service team in Swale.
This week, our tenants at Arkley Road celebrated Christmas, a little earlier than the rest of us. Support Workers, Kelly Forrest and Kerry Williams came up with the idea to have a ‘Christmas Day’ earlier in the month as tenants were heading back to their families for the holidays.
In October, we held our 57th Annual General Meeting which showcased our current successes and future plans. This time last year, members highlighted certain gaps in our services and we sought to change that. As a result, this year’s meeting was titled, ‘Responding to Members’.
We are proud to welcome a second Operations Manager to our team. Karen Loughrill has joined us to lead our Day Opportunities for adults and children with a learning disability and work closely alongside fellow Operations Manager, Tim Birchley, who is responsible for regulated care, domiciliary, community and supported living.
The Supporting People Enablement Team (SPET) are currently helping one of our older tenants to find a companion to spend time with on a regular basis. She loves spending time out and about and is looking for a mature female to share her love of arts and crafts, accompany her on trips, and have a chat over coffee.
On Sunday 14th May, The St Crispin Inn, Worth hosted charity helicopter rides to raise money for Cancer Research UK. William House tenants, Philip Lovelock, Joy Crick and Ingrid Jelhe took off into the air for a breathtaking view of East Kent
