He is bright and inquisitive and open to being introduced to new activities, would you like to explore these together? To find out more about this role get in touch, interviews are being booked shortly.

The Role:

Our client is a 19-year-old man who has cerebral palsy and is dependent on others for all his needs.  He is a wheelchair user and non-verbal but is very good at using a communication aid to articulate his wishes. His behaviour can be challenging at times and he can experience low mood.  His family and Support Worker team including a Multi-Disciplinary Team (MDT) are working with him on this aspect.

He lives in his family home with his parents and two younger siblings.  Although working alone with our client whilst in his family home (family may be present in the home) another Support Worker will accompany you on days out/holidays where needed.  Full training in all aspects of our client’s support will be given and you will be supported by his Team Leader and Parents.

About You:

You will provide a supportive approach to our client by following his Care plan, providing personal care and helping him pursue his interests and hobbies, as well as explore any new activities in which he might be interested.  You will be kind, positive and reliable with a good sense of humour with the ability to think on your feet.  You will enjoy the company of animals as our client has a small dog.

If you have previous experience as a Support Worker or in SEN this would be advantageous but please do apply even if you don’t have experience as full training will be provided.

You will need to be a driver (over 21 for insurance purposes) with a full, clean driving licence as you will take our client out in his own manual adapted car.

You will double up with another Support Worker at times, particularly for trips out.
