We offer you the opportunity to join a professional and dynamic team ensuring the provision of valued quality services to vulnerable adults across Suffolk. Knowledge of the public sector and adult social care is not essential if you have the right skills and expertise.

Within Adult Community Services our model of working is called Supporting Lives, Connecting Communities (SLCC) and is based on providing our customers, or those who care for them:

  • help to help themselves and find information and solutions to help meet their care and support needs, or to carry out a caring role
  • help to live independently at home for longer
  • help to regain independence by offering immediate short-term support, especially after a crisis or hospital admission
  • ongoing care and support for those who need it, including helping carers sustain their caring role if this is what they want.

Most importantly, our focus is on supporting people to be as independent as possible and reducing dependency on statutory services.
