Our main role is to identify the care needs of adults living in Kirklees and to provide cost effective, quality services which safeguard and promote the wellbeing of those people in greatest need.
We aim to arrange services which help people to live independently in their local communities or with families, friends and relatives for as long as they want, or are able.
We offer a range of services to older people, people with a physical or sensory disability and people with learning disabilities.
These services are provided 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, to meet our service user’s assessed needs. Support can be provided at home, in the community or in Council run establishments.
This can include emergency response, respite and long-term care or support to carers. We also offer support to people who have dementia or who are nearing the end of their life.
Working as part of a team and often alongside colleagues in health, for example, nurses and occupational therapists, you will provide front line support to people who use our services.
You will need to be flexible in your approach to work and work patterns.
