Purpose of the Job:

I am a young boy and I live with my father and sibling. I have a diagnosis of Autism, global development delay with associated behaviour difficulties. My father rarely gets time to spend with my sibling or have time for himself as I depend on him 24/7. As a result, I require personal assistants who will support me in accessing the community keeping me safe which will in turn provide me with opportunities away from my father and give him a break where he can socialise independently of me. I require my PA support on a 2 to 1 basis so you will always be working alongside another PA.

My assistant must be honest, trustworthy, and reliable, must respect my privacy and maintain my dignity at all times.

My assistant must be enthusiastic and flexible with a caring disposition. You must be able to work well independently.

Experience is preferred, but not essential as full training will be provided.

My personal assistant is accountable to my father in all aspects of their work. They should always ask what my needs are and listen to my directions and requests.

Main Duties:

To support me in accessing age appropriate activities within the community

To keep me safe within the community

To support me in meeting my toileting needs

To support me in meeting my dietary and fluid intake

To attend sessions at my local church and act as my support which will allow my father to join in session independently
