Looking for flexible working?

I am a 15 young adult who is a wheelchair user who requires a Personal Assistant to support me.

My family would describe me as very bright and fun. I love interactive play and I create stories to say what I want; my Personal Assistant would need to get to know me well as my verbal communication is to get used to.
