As this is a role that involves directly caring for our vulnerable clients, residents, and family members, you will need to provide evidence that you have been vaccinated against Covid, before starting your new role as per our company policy. A copy of the policy can be made available to you upon request.  

For new recruits, we will now ask at both application and interview stage whether you have had or would be willing to have the vaccine.

You will feel like part of a family when you join us as a Butterfly Support Worker at Haviland House. You will provide person-centred support for our residents that requires empathy and compassion, respecting that feelings matter the most.

Our approach is all about making Haviland House a home for life and making it a calming and comfortable environment for our residents which also means that staff no longer wear uniforms or adhere to strict routines.

Our staff are trained to nurture people within this safe and comfortable home. At Haviland House, where residents are referred to as ‘family members’, we have removed the feelings of 'us and them' to create a family home environment and to build quality relationships.

Our commitment is to provide a person-centered approach and therefore minimising neutral care. We never take a ‘one size fits all’ approach and provide care in a way that values each individual’s likes and dislikes.
