What is it all about?

We are looking for individuals with a background in social care who can support children and adults with disabilities to live independently in their local communities.

You will need to be well organised, a confident communicator and have loads of motivation and a determination to always deliver your best. Due to the nature and scope of this role you will also need a driving licence and access to your own vehicle.
