jobs description

This is an exciting new opportunity for 2 Outreach and Support Workers within our Adult Autism Service, who will be based at Space4Autism in Macclesfield, Cheshire.

You will be working to support adults from the age of 16 or 18 years upwards (depending on locality) who are autistic or who are on the waiting list for an autism assessment.

These new posts will work directly in partnership with local autism hubs and relevant third sector partners (charities, community interest and not-for-profit organisations) to develop and deliver improved support in the community under the direction of qualified practitioners and provide follow-up support to bespoke interventions.

We would welcome applications from people with lived experience and will look to offer support with the application and recruitment process.

Although these are full time posts of 37.5hrs per week, we would consider applications for part-time working on an individual basis - just ask for more information about... this.

Under guidance and support you will-
• Work under the direction of qualified practitioners providing follow-up support to bespoke interventions.
• Provide basic information, advice, guidance and training to other health professionals supporting autistic adults.
• Work to reduce the barriers faced by autistic adults when accessing mainstream services and encourage the knowledge base and skill set of other commissioned services in providing reasonable adjustments in line with the Equality Act.

You will work with colleagues, including lived experience advisors, to develop and maintain resources for autistic adults and adults referred for an assessment as well as health and social care staff.

CWP provides health and care services for local people, including mental health, learning disability, community physical health and all-age disability care – including the provision of three GP surgeries.

Our aim is to help people to be the best they can be, adopting a compassionate, person-centred approach to everything we do. We were recently rated as Outstanding for Caring by the Care Quality Commission with a Good rating overall.

We offer a variety of roles at all levels, so whether you are just starting out in your career or looking to use your skills and experience in a new role, CWP is the right employer for you.

CWP are committed to making our recruitment practices as inclusive as possible for everyone. We are committed to promoting equality and diversity and developing a culture that values differences.

To support this, we offer up to three weeks induction, dependent on role, with our Prepare to Care programme for all new starters. This aims to give you all the knowledge and guidance to help you grow and flourish with CWP.

We welcome applications from people who have direct experience of accessing our services.
