Erin - Hazel View
I love working at Purley Park Trust! The atmosphere and vibe as soon as you walk on site is so positive and inspiring. Staff are so supportive of each other and really welcoming when a new member of staff starts, whether they have worked in care before or not. As a staff member there is lots of opportunity to grow as an individual as well. PPT ensure and encourage staff to complete their Care Certificate as well as their NVQ qualifications. As well as this, PPT are very understanding of staff’s life outside work, they have given me opportunities to carry on teaching dance outside of PPT, by working the rota around my schedule. This has made me a more well-rounded person as I have a really good work/ life balance – all thanks to Purley Park Trust’s support.
One thing that really drew me to PPT was, the people we support also have lots of opportunities on and off site to try and experience new things. The club house, is a haven for the people we support, as they get to socialise, create and discover there! I thought this was so important and special as they can build and develop new skills. This is encouraged by ALL staff and builds relationships not only for residents who live in different houses, but also staff!
I absolutely love working at Purley Park Trust, and would highly recommend it to anyone who is already working in care, or is new to the care sector.’
