Support Workers will be emotionally resilient, patient, empathetic and understand the need for consistency in their approach and communication skills. The ability to create and maintain safe working boundaries between yourself and the people you will be supporting is of paramount importance. These are people who can at times, display behaviours that are challenging and unpredictable.
