Halton Supported Housing Network is a group of 19 houses across Runcorn and Widnes, providing accommodation and support for adults with learning and physical disabilities in the community.

We are putting people first and focusing on what people with a disability can do as opposed to what they cannot; supporting people in such a diverse way is one of the main reasons why Halton Supported Housing Network has won national awards.

We believe that people with a disability should be the drivers in their lives not the passengers; therefore person centred support workers need to support and engage people to take the lead in living in their own homes. The service has multiple vacancies for committed individuals to act in the capacity of Support Worker, promoting people with disabilities to engage in all aspects of their daily living and links into meaningful opportunities within their local community.

The role will include working alongside people who at times can display behaviour that can be challenging. Ideally, you will have NVQ qualifications in Adult Social Care and experience in working with Physical disabilities and being able to undertake personal care is also essential. This is a lone working post and you should therefore be comfortable working on this basis.

This is a challenging but extremely rewarding role which, working on a rota basis, may include work at weekends, bank holidays and some sleep-in duties. Additional enhancements for unsociable hours worked are payable.

We have several roles available, ranging in hours per week. We also have casual roles available, so whatever your situation we feel we could have the right position for you, to enable you to enjoy a positive work/life balance.


In return for your commitment, we can offer you a competitive salary, generous annual leave entitlement and access to the Local Government Pension Scheme. We also provide a comprehensive training programme as part of your role.

For an informal discussion about this post, please contact HSHN duty person, Emma Berrington (Principle Manager) on 0151-511-6965 or Margaret Myler (Assistant Manager) on 0151 511 6439

Interviews will be held w/c 29 April 2024

At Halton Borough Council we want to ensure that our communities are represented across our workforce and a vital part of this is to encourage diversity in all respects. We are committed to making our recruitment practices barrier-free and tailored to best suit the needs and strength of the individual. This includes making adjustments for people with a disability, neurodiversity or with long-term health conditions. If you require accommodations, please reach out during the recruitment process so that we can make this the best possible experience for you – resourcing@halton.gov.uk
