An organisation that provides services to people with learning difficulties has announced expansion plans.
The Brothers of Charity Services (Lancashire) is creating 16 new roles.
It is currently expanding its boundaries to now provide services in East and West Lancashire, Wigan, Blackburn and Darwen.
Based in Whittle-le-Woods, it helps people who have learning disabilities to live more fulfilled and independent lives.
It is further expanding its team of 400 staff after clinching new contracts, which has resulted in almost 50 per cent growth in its specialist support services over the last 12 months.
Richard Stowe, head of specialist support teams, said: “This is a truly exciting time for our organisation. After a period of consolidation and much planning, we are delighted to announce these new services.
“We are also extremely pleased that this new work has created 16 new specialist support worker roles.”
He added: “We are particularly excited with the development of our new respite service that will allow our guests to have a great holiday experience, whilst the people they love have an opportunity for a well-deserved rest.”
The organisation is also expanding its core care services in the community and is looking for individuals with varying levels of caring experience to work as support workers.
These are both full and part-time opportunities and will benefit from Brothers of Charity Services’ award-winning in-house training.
Brothers of Charity Services (Lancashire) is part of an international organisation covering more than 25 countries.
