About the person we support:

We have an outgoing young lady in her 30s who we're supporting to be active by going out on regular walks and perhaps feeding the ducks. 

She also loves a pub lunch, music, sensory play and spening time with her family..

She has a learning disability, autism and we’re looking for outgoing, highly motivated support workers to assist her to live independently in her own home on a 2 to 1 basis.

You will also need to provide emotional reassurance when experiencing behaviours of distress – full positive behaviour support training is provided but previous experience is essential.

This lady enjoys being out in her car and there will be a Motability car., so drivers very welcome to apply and we do have a scheme to support with lesson for any apsiring drivers also. 

What will I be doing? 

  • You will be supporting them to live their lives how they choose and to achieve their goals.
  • With the ladies autism activities have to have a clear middle objective and an end one.
  • You'll be supporting by engaging in intensive interaction such as mirroring their actions and body language (Full Training Provided)
