    I worked at Mencap part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Absolutely loved working here , Managers and Office staff were so supportive , Professional and most of all understanding ... and The Service User I supported well she will always hold a special place in my heart.

    Cons

    Living alone and having two pets to keep me company and only working part time all took it's toll on me .. I became unreliable due to lack of funds and the shifts I worked were too many hrs in one shift ..

    Advice to Management

    if the shifts could have been taken down to 8 hr shifts between all staff it would have been far more Manageable and Good support workers wouldn't be getting burned out and or exhausted .. The hrs seem to suit Managers More than Support Workers .. who are after all front line of the care ..
