Day in the Life of a Residential Support Worker

A Typical Support Worker's Day



Tuesday Morning

I wake up and think to myself ‘I love this job,’ I can’t believe I get to spend it with kids and help them.

It’s Tuesday morning and I need to get one of the young people to school some miles away. I don’t mind as it gives us time to chat, he really opens up when we are in the car.


Tuesday Afternoon

Once he’s been dropped off, I go to attend a training session at the office. (I was a bit nervous as I don’t know many people, and some high up people work there who I haven’t met)

I shouldn’t have worried as everyone was nice and friendly. We had a lovely lunch and I learned loads about safeguarding our young people (although I had already done a course as part of my induction).

After training I went back to the home and all the young people were already back from school. I had a handover from the manager who had been covering my shift whilst I was at training.


Tuesday Evening

 I then took two of the young people late night shopping and we had a lovely hot chocolate before coming home

Once the young people were in bed, I completed some paperwork (I am getting quicker) before having a debrief with my colleague about how the day has gone.
