Your patient support and encouragement will assist individuals to run their own lives as much as possible including helping with personal care.

In this role you will support young people to access the community and attend various activities in the Nuneaton area after school and at the weekend. Extra support may also be required during the school holidays.

Flexibility is needed as working times do vary. A full UK driving licence and use of your own vehicle is desirable for this role.
