Les Amis is one of Jersey’s largest charitable organisations and with that, one of the biggest respite and residential service providers on the island. Set up in 1975, Les Amis is made up of a team of some 200 employees. Les Amis staff are wholeheartedly dedicated to ensuring the very best quality of care and support for the people who need it, from the residents to the families and in wider community in Jersey.
With three main elements making up the service provided by Les Amis; residential, outreach and respite, our aim is to provide a spectrum of services as diverse as the requirements of our clients, residents and their families. Les Amis offers a homely environment where residents feel empowered and able to express themselves and make real choices that affect their lives, our aim is to encourage and support.
It is important to understand that in many circumstances, people with learning disabilities can achieve their goals, from living reasonably independently, to living with gentle support and care - disability does not mean inability and at Les Amis, we offer the right support at the right time, in the right place and with the right people and professionals.
The team that lights up Les Amis, are more than just staff - they are friends… With dozens of roles to fill, the ‘amis’ (friends) work together like a well oiled machine, making sure that every aspect of the Les Amis service meets the expectations of their clients, residents and the families who rely on them. Les Amis staff are a beacon to the people they help - enabling people with learning disabilities to shine.
Les Amis’ core team of staff are featured here, but in reality, Les Amis is made up of lots more people; more staff and of course, the volunteers and supporters and others who light up the Les Amis service… We’d like to introduce you to the people who make the day to day running of such a large organisation possible… From taking care in the community via our outreach service and respite for stay overs and family support, to longer term residential care, it’s more than just a lease - it’s a lease of life.
One thing that everyone at Les Amis has in common is that they love their work and are proud to be part of such a life changing service in Jersey.
Helping people to fulfil their potential is fulfilling in itself, which makes working with our residents deeply rewarding. If you’d like to find out more, just fill in the boxes below and upload your CV. We’ll then be in touch.
