Who will I be supporting? 

  • A fabulous young man in his own supported living home
  • He has autism and can experience behaviours of distress
  • He is looking for kind, calm and resilient people with previous experience to join his friendly support team
  • He has his own mobility vehicle to further support his independence so it is essential that you have a full UK driving licence (you do not need your own car as you will be driving his car)

What will I be doing? 

  • You will be supporting this gentleman to live his life how he chooses, to be himself and to achieve his goals

What shifts are available?
