Opportunities to Work with People with Learning Disabilities


Everyone wants a purposeful job, to do something really meaningful.  At Croydon Mencap we can give you just that.  With us it is never “just a job”

You will meet new people and feel inspired to reach your potential.  We will ask a lot of you – but you will get back so much more.  In return for your hard work and passion Croydon Mencap can give you real meaning and purpose in your work.  We will offer you fun, support and challenge to be the best you can be.

Working with a brilliant and fun team you will provide support people with learning disabilities that attend our Centre in Leslie Park Road, Croydon, to participate in a range of activities that you will help to plan and deliver. Many activities take place away from the Centre so it is essential you are able to drive. Previous experience of working with people with learning disabilities is desirable but not essential.

Sabien Gator

Stephen Barnett and Shaun Moor have been working together under the support of Carousel since 2010. Having played together in various bands, the pair officially joined forces as Sabien Gator in September 2012 and have since added drummer Fraser Caygill to the band.

The multi-talented, multi-instrumentalists have recently worked on an exciting piece called Creatures of the Revolution; a collaboration with performer Matthew Hellett (aka Mrs Sparkle) and digital artists Sarah Watson and Jason Eade, with Simon Wilkinson (Circa69).
Robin Plays Chords

Robin Jax’s exploits as RobinPlaysChords have been built on a slow but steady sonic development. Building on the release of 2014’s Teardrop Girl-Star EP, 2017’s Teardrop Girl-Star LP – which was recorded in studios in the UK and Ukraine – is the culmination of six years of fine tuning a remarkably focused sound. Gentle shimmering textures and jagged distortion embrace each other warmly. Robin sings words that beckon you closer, to come forward across seemingly impassable distances. RobinPlaysChords has previously opened for the likes of The Irrepressibles and Thomas Truax, as well as appearing at Tramlines Festival and playing shows in mainland Europe.

Looks like a smashing night out, so please share with your friends and all the people you support.

Please make plans to   and make the changes to staff support plans so that the person you are supporting can choose when they want to go home right up until the last big choon…
