#EveryDayIsDifferent

Come and work with us if you share our values and passion for supporting children and young people with learning disabilities, and their families receive services that respond to what they want, and are respectful to them, shaped by them, and meet their needs

Work with us and make a difference !

Working with KCA means that every day will be different and you will be part of a team providing support to society’s most vulnerable children and young people.

You will have the privilege to be part of children’s joys, triumphs, failures, frustrations, sadness and laughter. However, most of all you will be there to provide the right support to make a life worth living and enable access to everything life has to offer, just like for everyone else.

 

The best part of my job is making a difference to the lives of so many young people; people who have had a challenging start to life. Teaching and modelling are vital to these children so that they thrive in the future.

Over the 8 years I have been at KCA I have seen many children grow up and I love to see how they develop their skills. The job does have challenges however the team is extremely supportive and is always there to provide support. It’s not only a job, it’s also a family.
