Danny’s Dream offers a unique combination of domiciliary care with that of care and support at the Danny’s Dream Club and other leisure and community activities.  We offer a fully person-centred approach that is respectful of difference and diversity and focuses on the needs of the individual, rather than a more service-centred provision.  We see the person first and not the disability.  We use everyday language rather than jargon and we proactively search for can-do options that empower our service users. Opportunities have arisen for us to recruit experienced individuals to the following post:
