A fantastic opportunity has arisen to provide support to a young woman. If you are flexible in your approach to work, able to carry out domestic household tasks, including meal planning and meal preparation then this job will be ideal. Furthermore, there will be some opportunity to support her with her interests and if you enjoy the arts and music this would be particularly appealing.


About the role

To provide support within my home and at times within the community that I live in and to take part in activities of my choosing. The role is to support my independence and ensure that essential household tasks are carried out.  My health condition is fluctuating and therefore the position will require flexibility.

About me

I am a young woman in my mid 30’s. I have a keen interest in the arts. I am a community artist and a writer. I am currently writing my first novel.

Prior to Covid I was working on several arts-based projects within my community. I have been involved in participatory community-based artwork within Newcastle Cathedral. I am passionate about Social Justice, using arts and music to raise awareness of the issues in society, particularly around the rights of the LBGTQ community.
