An exciting opportunity has arisen for a support worker to join a team of carers to assist a funny, caring, and lovely 19-year-old young lady with cerebral palsy in the Winchmore Hill/Enfield area.
Our client is currently at college but plans are being made for her to leave and move onto further education in 2024.

It would be preferable if you did have some experience in a caring role but we would love to hear from you if you want to support someone to lead as independent life as possible, would expect to offer personal support respectfully, caring as you would want to be cared for yourself.

At times you will work alone with the client, but for days out, holidays and activities, you will be working alongside a colleague.
