Quarriers North Lanarkshire Supported Living Service is recruiting now for dedicated Support Workers who can help make a positive difference to people’s lives.

The North Lanarkshire Supported Living service offers practical help and support for 32 people living in the region.

For more than 140 years, Quarriers has been one of Scotland’s largest social care charities providing care and support for young people, adults and families who face extremely challenging circumstances.

Jan Whitelaw, Project Manager at Quarriers North Lanarkshire Supported Living Service, said “A good support worker should value others and see beyond any disability they may have.

“They should be empathetic, resilient, looking for a challenge, have excellent communication skills and have a genuine passion for people.”

One such person is Support Worker Kate Carr who left a career in banking to move to Quarriers, and she loves her job.

“I’ve now worked for Quarriers North Lanarkshire Supported Living Project for nearly eight years,” she says. “The people I support bring sunshine fun and laughter, into every day and I can honestly say that I would not want to work any place else.”

“Being a support worker brings challenges, but the job satisfaction is so worth it.”

One mum whose daughter is supported by the service said “Our daughter Rebecca has been supported by Quarriers North Lanarkshire Supported Living for seven years. Her team of staff are fantastic and help her to enjoy various activities and meet lots of people with similar interests. Quarriers is an excellent organisation.”
