I am a young man living in the Afan Valley area. I have severe autism, learning difficulties, epilepsy and sensory dysfunction. I need support with some challenging behaviours when out in the community and someone who has an awareness of seizures. I have a friendly personality and like being outdoors. I have minimal speech, but can communicate my basic needs and I like to maintain my independence as far as I am able. I have no sense of danger, so would need to be supervised at all times to ensure my safety is maintained. I need a personal assistant who would help and encourage my independence and social skills further.
The role is to support me with engaging in social experiences in the community, such as going to the cinema, swimming, parks etc.
Up to 15 hours per month to be arranged for day time care, with flexible working primarily during the school holidays and occasional weekends.
