My name is Izzy, I am 18 years old. I have Autism, learning difficulties and I find it difficult to socially communicate. I require assistance with aspects of daily living, especially accessing my local community and forming new connections. Nevertheless, I would love to schedule more trips outside of my home environment, visiting shops, going clothes shopping, swimming, or going further afield with someone who understands my requirements and has similar interests to me; where we can visit new places and connect with new people. I currently live in my family home.

The primary objective of this role is based upon building a connection and getting to understand our boundaries, so we can develop a friendship. This is not just a standard care job; it’s helping me to get the best out of my life from a social perspective. However, it is still important that you respect my role as your employer and be willing to work solely under any direction given to you by me or my family. Your role will be to provide physical and social assistance, as I require, in order to maintain my independence as much as possible whilst out within the community. You must be extremely reliable and be able to work flexible hours (sometimes at short notice).
