Gaer, Newport : PS

I am looking to employ a Personal Assistant to support my 8 year old son with additional needs to access the community for 3 hours per week or more at a rate of £12 per hour. In term time this ideally would be on the weekends and in the school holidays this can be flexible. 

My son is non-verbal, autistic and enjoys the outdoors but less so in the winter. He is sensory seeking and also spits, which is part of his autism traits. He likes to be physically active and movement is important to him. He loves trampolining, water play, swings, slides and physical activities. He sometimes does not like places with too many people or too many noises. He has no sense of danger and thus you need to hold his hand at all times to keep him safe. He can also get impatient.

I am looking for someone to take him out to the trampoline park, play park, a good walk and sometimes McDonalds. He also enjoys being in his garden, especially during the warmer months. I would need someone to play with him in the garden or just supervise him. 

This post is subject to an enhanced disclosure application to the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) and the successful employee must have the required insurance cover for their vehicle.

If you are a trustworthy, reliable, patient individual who can commit to 3 hours per week at the rate of £12.00 per hour, please email [email protected] to request an application form and quote reference PS.
