Our work is diverse

Outward delivers Care & Support across several London boroughs and try to employ local people who know the communities in which they are working. The work that we do is extremely diverse and ranges from supporting people with profound and multiple learning disabilities and young people at risk. We also have opportunities that allow you to support older people, people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and people with mental health conditions.

Outward is proud of its achievements in supporting people with disabilities. We are a registered charity, which means that we are a not for profit organisation. We have been running for over 45 years. Our vision is that each person who needs support gets support to lead the life they choose enabling people to have a greater choice of independence and control over how they live their own lives.

If you have a caring attitude and share our vision and values and interested in joining the Outward family then we want to hear from you. You can apply for any of our vacancies on our vacancies page or for any further information regarding recruitment please contact

It is very rewarding to support people with dignity. I get happy being able to assist somebody who has a need. And I realise that if I was ever in their shoes I would also appreciate somebody supporting me with dignity.

Learn more about all of our benefits

“What I like about working at Outward is, when I need support, I can always find someone to help.

If you become a support worker it’s a great opportunity to learn and be coached until you feel confident. There are plenty of opportunities to develop according to your skill.

I joined Outward in 2001 as a support worker and after a couple years I became a senior support worker, then moved up to deputy manager and now I’m a team manager.

If you asked me which job I preferred out of all the roles I’ve worked in at Outward – I would say – support worker because I love to make people smile. It makes my day seeing the changed lives of the people we support from the day they joined us, up until now.

If you have good intentions and your heart is in it, you can really help the people we support. It’s a very rewarding job to help people and give them a good quality of life.”
