My name is Charlie and I am looking for a Personal Assistant to join my care team. I am 11 and I live with my family – this includes Mum, Dad, my four brothers and sisters and the family cats and dogs. You need to be an animal person to work with me! I need a Personal Assistant who is good company, tech savvy (I use technology a lot), patient, calm and reliable. It would be great if you are interested in some of the things I enjoy, like YouTube, watching football and darts, playing with board games, reading books, talking about superheroes, and playing on the Wii (supported).

Ideally you will have worked with children with complex needs, including support around tracheostomy care and peg feeding.

You will receive full training on how to provide my support.
