Find out what being a support worker involves. 

With the ever increasing pressures at work and home, there are times when we all need some extra support to balance the demands of everyday life. That is why we are delighted to let you know that Encompass now provides a free and confidential, Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) from Care First.

Why do we see working with children as being so rewarding? Probably because children learn and develop every day – caring for a child effectively can make their future brighter and their life better.
