Wellbeing 

At Aspens, we take the wellbeing of our staff and those we support very seriously.

Equal opportunities

Here at Aspens Charities, we value diversity and inclusivity. 

We strive to create an inclusive and engaging culture which cultivates strong, informed leaders. One of our top priorities as an organisation is to provide a working environment in which everyone feels valued no matter what their age, race, religion or philosophical belief, gender, sexual orientation, family status or disability. 

We are a Disability Confident employer. Disability Confident is creating a movement of change, encouraging employers to think differently about disability and take action to improve how they recruit, retain and develop disabled people.

Career development

Whether you're starting out in care or are looking to develop further into your chosen field, we offer opportunities for career development. Our dedicated Training Team works hard to source training to meet staff needs and supports our people to develop their careers.

"I have seen first-hand how Aspens is able to offer great opportunities to staff who are willing to work hard and work as part of a team to provide high standards of care and support to those who chose to be supported by us. 4 years ago I was window cleaning and feeling like I was in a dead end job with no opportunities to progress but I am now the interim project manager for a fantastic company helping to oversee some really exciting projects that Aspens have planned for the future. I feel appreciated by my peers and feel that there are still many opportunities for me here at Aspens in the future in a wide variety of areas and I’m excited for the next 4 years." Jamie, Interim Project Manager.
