Why work for us?

Together, we are stronger. Together, we are LYPFT.

We recruit people based on their values and believe that their lived experience is an advantage. We seek out potential, not perfection, which means that together, we are as diverse as the communities
we care for.

Simply put, when we employ caring people who act with integrity and have the right skills, we can give those with mental health challenges, learning disabilities and neurodiversity high-quality care and support to live fulfilling lives and make our staff feel purposeful, happy and valued.
