Working in the Supported Living and Outreach (SLO) service gives you the chance to support adults with physical and learning disabilites, helping them enjoy as full and independent a life as possible.
The fundamental goal is to promote independent living, making sure that everyone is able to make choices, and take part in opportunities that come with living in Shetland. At the core of the service is a belief in inclusion and relationships that enable meaningful connections to family, friends and the wider community.
This is very rewarding work.
Activities may include:
- Moving and assisting with personal care,
- Social skills education, based around inclusion
- Outdoor and indoor activities that promote a healthy lifestyle
- Risk assessment, support planning and risk enablement that encourage positive behaviour support.
Individuals may also be supported around their emotional and social needs with staff offering compassionate support to help people understand, prepare for and manage independent living.
