Day services roles

Day services are adult social care services that provide support and care during the day, usually outside of peoples' homes. These types of services can offer a range of activities; such as sports, arts and crafts, work-based learning, animal care, cooking sessions and community visits.

Support workers in these settings work with people to help them make the most of the activities on offer. Some services have specific focuses, such as sports coaching or work-based learning. In these cases, support workers help teach these skills and support people to reach their goals.
