Megan - Team Leader

I came to Quarriers after studying social care at Strathclyde University. My student placements gave me experience in different sectors of the care industry, but when a role came up with Quarriers supporting adults with a disability, I was keen to take on a new challenge.

In my role as team leader at Quarriers East Dunbartonshire Services, I ensure that my team is helping people we support to live fulfilling, meaningful lives. Quarriers cares a great deal about the people we support and the teams who support them, and this is so important in social care. I am there to support my team, and I too feel supported and encouraged by my line manager.

A support worker should value people and believe that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect. I believe in having an ‘I can’ attitude, and I love seeing people thrive and achieve.

Gary, Senior Autism Practitioner

After leaving school, I worked in the construction industry. Around this time, my uncle was diagnosed with mental health issues which completely changed his life and meant he now required help from support staff to meet both physical and mental wellbeing needs. I saw how much of a difference his support staff made to his life, and I decided I wanted to make a difference too, to support people to live full and fulfilling lives.

I work at Quarriers Mearns View Service which specialises in supporting people with autism. As soon as I heard about the service, I knew it was where I wanted to be.

Quarriers is an extremely supportive organisation that encourages staff to excel and grow. During my time here, I have completed HNC and SVQ qualifications. My line manager is knowledgeable and approachable, and although I work different shifts, Quarriers has allowed me to have a set day off every week which has been extremely helpful for organising childcare.

My favourite thing about my job is being part of the lives of the people we support and helping them to conquer new challenges and goals.

A good support worker should be patient, caring and respectful, and above all, they should be driven by making people’s lives better. Being a part of Quarriers is a fantastic and rewarding opportunity.
