DPSS604 - Personal Assistant - 3 hours per week (Saturday) - Neath (Ref: V000604)

Location: Neath
Pay: £12.00
Closing: 13/01/2027


I am a 13 year old boy living in central Neath with my family and pet dog. I enjoy doing Karate, going to the cinema and bowling. I like playing chess and computer games. I enjoy walking to the Gnoll and over to Burger King.

I am Autistic. I have ADHD and Oppositional Defiance Disorder. I am looking for a PA to support me in going out for three hours on a Saturday, to places I enjoy. The PA will need to be confident, calm and consistent in their approach, as well as vigilant as I have no safety awareness.

The PA will need to be patient but firm, as I have no understanding of time, or when an activity is due to end.


  •             Support me to go out walking in the local area.
  •             Support me to go to the cinema and bowling.
  •             Support me to do other activities I enjoy.

  • Is confident in dealing with challenging behaviour.

  • Is patient but firm.
  • Can gently challenge me, but not provoke me, if my behaviour is not appropriate.
  • Experience of Autism preferred.
