A LEADING Sussex charity is offering a £600 Golden Hello to attract new staff.

It could mean working on the farm, boxing, lifting weights, horse riding, swimming and drama.

That’s all in a day’s work at Chailey Heritage Foundation at its site in North Chailey, near to Lewes, Haywards Heath and Uckfield.

The £600 Golden Hello is a new initiative to attract people into exciting roles at Chailey’s Special School and Residential Homes. Flexible hours are also promised.

Rosie Boys joined as a Support Worker in January 2022, and she loves it.

She supports Holly – who is deaf and non-verbal – every Tuesday and Wednesday at Chailey.

Rosie said: “No two days are ever the same which keeps it interesting.

The atmosphere is so vibrant; the staff are brilliant and we have so much fun with the young people who love the buzz and positivity of the place.

“If you’re compassionate and fun, being a Support Worker is a really rewarding career.

“It’s so satisfying to see a young person achieve something because of the support you give them, and working in such a fun, lively and positive environment is great for your wellbeing too.”

Chailey Heritage Foundation’s Chief Executive, Gareth Germer, said: “We believe that every child and young person should have the opportunity to pursue their fullest potential.

“Our staff are at the heart of what we do and they play a vital part in helping the young people here.

“Every year we support more than 200 young people and their families.”
