-----------------------------

Who will I be supporting? 

  • A lovely lady in her 20s, who has a mild learning disability and epilepsy, who is supported to live independently in her own home
  • She loves going to Dreamboys shows, gigs and concerts – she’s a fan of pop music, reggae and hip hop, and her favourite artists are Little Mix, Sean Paul and N-Dubz
  • She has a brilliant relationship with her family and loves spending time with them each week
  • She also loves a day out shopping in Primark and visiting the cat café for a coffee

  • She’s an absolute pleasure to support!

What will I be doing? 

  • You will be supporting her to live her life how she chooses, to be herself and to achieve her goals

What shifts are available? 

  • Shifts start at 9am one day and finish at 9am the following day with a sleepover shift included between 10pm – 8am (sleepover shifts are paid at £45 per shift and don’t count towards your contracted hours)
