Information for Support Workers and Care Staff

For support workers or carers who are not Jewish, or not involved in the Jewish community, it can be hard to motivate the people we support to get involved.  However, there are many exciting and different opportunities on offer and the people we support may benefit in many ways from participation.  There are opportunities for dancing, art, exercise, volunteering, socialising, learning and partying as well as prayer services.

If you are supporting someone to go to synagogue (also called ‘shul’), or be involved in Jewish community life, below are links to some basic information which might be useful.  For information specific to your synagogue, you can check out our What’s On Guide or contact the Synagogue office or the Rabbi (leader of the community).  Some synagogues also have welfare groups who may be able to help.  In synagogues who have participated in the Judith Trust Inclusion Campaign, there will be trained volunteers who can offer support.  Please contact us if you would like us to work with your synagogue, or if you have any other questions.
