The Maples Community began as a small family run business. Their ambition was to create a service where they could work alongside the people they cared about and who shared their vision of enabling others to reach their potential. Over the past 25 years we have worked hard to maintain the ethos of getting to know and caring about each and every one of our employees as if they were a part of that family.
We recognise that people are individuals with a unique perspective and experience of the world around them. These personal experiences make up a large part of our unique ability to connect to one and other. That's why at The Maples Community, our employees aren't simply Support Workers or Housing Officers or any other role, they're musicians, footballers, artists, chefs. We encourage our staff to bring these abilities and interests to work to inspire, connect and enrich the interactions they have with each other and the people we support.
We are extremely fortunate to have an incredibly innovative, creative and compassionate team working within the Maples Community, who are willing and able to go above and beyond to support and those around them to reach their full potential.
