The role will involve supporting children with a range of disabilities in the community, across Shrewsbury and Shropshire so that they can access activities and support. For example this can include going to the park, cinema, eating out and promoting life skills and independence.

The ideal candidate will have some experience of working with either children or young adults with disabilities such as autism, ADHD, learning disability, physical disabilities, complex needs and/or mental health.

It is essential that you can offer commitment for the allocated hours to ensure consistency for both the child and their family.

Drivers with access to their own vehicle is highly desirable due to the locations of the children and being able to access activities and the community.

You must hold an enhanced DBS, or be willing to apply for one.

This is an ideal role for someone looking to work part time or fit extra work around another job or other commitments. It is a highly rewarding role that can make a great difference to a vulnerable young person.
