Testimonials

We think Active Prospects is a great organisation to work for. But don’t take our word for it – read what some of our staff have to say about working here:

Charlotte Hazell, Assistant Service Manager, The Pines

“I joined Active Prospects in 2013 as a Support Worker, having no experience in care. I was given full training before I started, but really you learn most on the job. You get complete fulfilment doing this kind of work and I could not see myself doing anything different!  Recently we took two of the people we support on holiday to Tenerife, and though they may not be able to vocalise their enjoyment, we could see how much they enjoyed themselves by their sounds and facial expressions – and that is what makes it all worthwhile.

After a spell acting-up as a Senior Support Worker and starting to study for the Level 3 in Health and Social Care, I was given the opportunity to act up as an Assistant Service Manager and after three months, was appointed to the role. This has really given me a confidence boost, and thanks to Active Prospects I am now moving up in my career.”

Alan Boxall, Cleaner and person we support

“I love my job cleaning Head Office.  It keeps me busy!  I like vacuuming, dusting, emptying bins and washing the kitchen floor.  I also like to clean the windows and polish. Most of all I enjoy the company of the office staff.”

Sophie Hutchings, Support Worker, Wolverton Gardens

“I was working in a bar when somebody suggested a career in care. I had no qualifications and was very shy. I nearly didn’t turn up for my interview, but I’m very glad I did! I was initially employed as an apprentice and, having now completed the Level 2 in Health and Social Care and my apprenticeship, I am now a Support Worker and have started study for the Level 3. I love my job! It’s the little things – when someone smiles. One of the people we support sometime giggles when I tuck her in at night. I’m still shy but have so much more confidence and recently talked to students at East Surrey College about my job to promote working in the sector.”

Alice Hunt, Support Worker, Woodview

“Working with Active Prospects as a Support Worker within Learning Disabilities is such a rewarding job role. It is a great experience to learn and understand people’s needs. I have also been able to get to know more about the specific disability they have, enabling me to support them in a much more efficient way.”
