Respite Home Support Work
Become a Home Support Worker
Our families are special to us. Each child has his or her own unique care needs. Lagan’s Foundation will ensure each home support worker is trained by medical professionals so they feel confident when looking after and playing with a child they are referred to.
All we ask is you allow a parent the chance for a minimum of 2 hours of time each week to do what they wish to do around the house, by taking over the general care and observations of the diagnosed child.
The majority of the work is carried out by volunteer home support workers.
Additionally, there are opportunities for paid professional home support / carer positions via “Lagan’s Care”. Priority is given to volunteers who have volunteered for Lagan’s Foundation for a minimum of 6 months. These positions are special and are designed around a commissioned care package for a child with complex needs, a heart condition or feeding issue upon request. The shifts can range from 2 Hour -12 hours, daytime or nights.
