Intensive Support team members are kind, compassionate and have genuine empathy for people who they support. Most of the team have experience of Mental Health challenges themselves.
When it comes to being an Intensive Support team member, It’s all about the positive vibes. One of the key roles of a team member is to build up a person’s confidence and self-esteem. With encouragement and motivation, team members help people to try things that they may not have done before. Providing people with this sense of confidence makes people more likely to participate in community and social activities, which can be of great benefit.

They may have to deal with confidential information relating to a participant including their personal finances. Being trustworthy is key in building solid and long-lasting relationships where people can rely on them and know they have their best interests at heart.
