The Purpose Of The Role

Your job will be to support community inclusion, to ensure that I am able to take part in the activities of my choosing safely and confidently. You will support me to develop my confidence, independent living skills as well as providing calm reassurance and support to manage any anxieties to prevent challenging behaviour.

About me

I am friendly and naturally caring I have a variety of interests including football, cinema, disco. I love animals. I enjoy exploring new places and look forward to day trips again once restrictions are lifted.

It is important to give me a lot of guidance and reassurance and supervision. I have little awareness of danger and can be anxious in crowded places, particularly if I see large groups of teenagers,
