      Pros

      People who we support are amazing. Management is helpful and friendly and ready to meet your needs when making a rota. Colleagues are very good people always ready to explain you something which you do not know. No one is lazy and does job with all the heart. You will never be the same person after supporting people with learning disabilities. You become a better person next to them.

      Cons

      The salary is very moderate, however it is always like that in this industry.
