Why Work For Us?

As an Avalon employee you will have access to lots of fantastic benefits including:

  • Award winning in-house training which can help you develop your career.
  • Paid travel expenses between consecutive sessions of support.
  • Exclusive discounts at major retailers and leisure companies such as Boots, M&S, Sports Direct, Apple, Tussauds and many more.
  • Access to a 24/7 employee helpline, offering impartial advice regarding any personal concerns you may have.
  • Paid Disclosure and Barring Services (DBS) check so that you can start work quickly knowing all necessary documents are in place.


Who We Are

We are an award-winning charity providing support to a wide range of individuals including those with learning and/or physical disabilities, dementia or mental health problems. We pride ourselves on spending quality time with our customers and do not undertake 15 minute calls.
