Where you’ll work

Situated next door to the local primary school, you often hear the joyful sounds of youngsters during their break time. The children often join us for arts and crafts or to give us a sneak preview of a choral performance, which is a real treat. The home also has its own minibus to take residents out and about. From garden centres and museums and other places across Oxfordshire - even trips to the seaside. We also use our minibus to support people living with dementia in their own homes around Yarnton and Kidlington, to get to a local day centre. This is something we are really proud of because we are helping to reduce social isolation within the area.
