Would you like to work within a family environment with a fun loving child with physical disabilities? Our son requires a fun loving, caring and confident team of assistants to help him with everyday life within our home on Southbank in York. Max has quadriplegic cerebral palsy coupled with a great sense of humour, loves watching football, having fun, learning and making the most of life. Max is non verbal but immerse yourself in Max and you will soon realise how excellent he is at communicating with facial expression, eyes and his communication device.

Ideally we are looking for someone that has been/or in a care giving role preferably with children but not essential.  We welcome applications if you can work only on certain days/hours within these times and will be seeking more than one carer to support on a job share basis and sometimes as co-carers as Max requires 2:1 care.
