Do you enjoy munching popcorn while watching a good film? Keeping fit by going swimming or to the gym? How about sharing these activities with a young woman who has a learning disability?
You´ll be working with Coral*, who lives in her own tenancy in the Hamilton area of Leicester. You´ll encourage her with everyday skills such as cooking and cleaning, as well as joining in with all the leisure activities she enjoys. Coral is someone who likes to live her life to the max - she doesn´t want her learning disability to slow her down.
Are you the sort of person who could join our friendly team supporting Coral to achieve her ambitions? You don´t need experience.
You´ll take your turn on our rota, working part-time (hours by agreement), mostly evening shifts and some weekends, plus one to three sleep-ins a week.
You must be a driver with your own transport.
