About the Employer

Interested in working in social care? Please read on to see how you can make a difference. I am a 21 year old male with autism and anxiety. I need support out in the community and to develop my skills in being independent. I enjoy going out for lunch, playing computer games and caring for my pets, at home we have 3 hens and a dog. I am looking to recruit a PA/support worker Support to engage in activities such as a walk in the park or a trip to the café. I need help to prepare my lunch and clear away. I need encouragement to engage in activities such as walking my dog, having a go on my treadmill or cleaning my hens. Sometimes I will just need someone to chat to if I am having a difficult day and it is too much for me to go out. I may require some help to go to the shop to purchase something for lunch or a snack. Help with changing my bed and putting my washing away. Once a relationship is built there are opportunities for support for up to 8 respite away nights (PA accommodation costs will be covered through direct payments). They will need to be patient and have some knowledge of autism and the challenges I might face. The individual needs to drive and have access to a car (mileage will be on top of wages). I need someone who can support me to plan activities in advance so I am prepared about what I am doing, they will also need to be able to give gentle encouragement to help me engage. Preferably a non-smoker due to sensory issues and someone who likes animals.
