Location: Port Talbot
Pay: £12.00
Closing: 02/11/2026


I am an 11 year old boy living in the Coed Hirwaun area of Port Talbot. I am a very affectionate little boy, with a very happy, cheeky and mischievous personality. I am curious and very aware of what goes on around me. I am very sociable and love being around others. I am non-verbal, but I can let you know what I want. I have Autism and learning difficulties. I wear pull-up nappies. I have no safety awareness and I can run off – I need someone to keep eyes on me at all times.

I enjoy my food. I like watching YouTube videos on my iPad, playing outdoors and in the park, going to soft play, playing in water and going swimming. I enjoy sensory play, cartoons, music and dancing.


  • Keeping me safe when we are out.
  • Take me to places I enjoy, such as the park and soft play.
  • Carry out nappy changes if required.
