I’m a young lady of 18 who lives at home with my parents in Loughborough. We are looking for someone to encourage and support me to develop new skills and get out and about for up to 6 hours a week. You will need to have a degree of flexibility as days and times may change depending on what we are planning to do.
   
I like to help my parents with jobs around the house such as cooking and cleaning but need guidance/supervision to do this safely. Part of our time together will be to support me to do these tasks, in an enabling manner, so it is essential that you understand how to step back and not take over.
  
It would be great if you have similar interests to me – I like to go shopping, going into town (Leicester/Loughborough), socialising with other young people (sometimes in the evening) and want to explore new opportunities, experiences. But – I need support to do this to ensure I’m safe. I’m also interested in working with people so longer term you could help me investigate possible voluntary placements at Residential Homes/Day Centres.
  
Enhanced DBS check applicable to this role (paid for by the funding authority)
  
Previous experience in a comparable role not crucial – more important is the ability to relate to a young person who wishes to exert her independence as an adult but needs direction/supervision to enable her to do so safely. A fun, outgoing personality with a patient, kind manner is key as is similar interests. Access to a vehicle and a clean/current driving license essential.
  
If you feel you have the relevant skills and personal qualities, then she and her family would love to hear from you.
