Vacancy Details

DPSS606 - Personal Assistant - 4 hours per week (plus 8 hours in school holidays) - Glyncorrwg (Ref: V000606)

Location: Port Talbot
Pay: £12.00
Closing: 25/02/2027


I am a 6 year old boy living in Glyncorrwg. I enjoy being on my tablet, going for walks and going to indoor play areas. I am very interested in Dinosaurs and like Disney’s Cars. I love playing in water.

I am Autistic. I have Global Development Delay and I have very little speech, but I am able to tell you what I want by pointing and leading you. I have a fun and cheeky personality but I can get frustrated easily. I experience challenging behaviour. I am very sensory and I like hugs.

I am looking for a PA to support me in going out to places I enjoy, such as Indoor play areas, Wiggleys Farm, going for walks up The Gnoll and Margam Park, and to the Splash Park down Aberavon beach front when the weather is nice. I also like going for a drive in the car.

The PA will need to support me with toileting and continence aid changes.

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 Gnoll and Margam Park.
  • Support me to go to Indoor Play Areas.
  • Support me to do other activities I enjoy.
  • Support me with toileting and continence aid changes.
  • Keeping me safe at all times as I have no danger awareness, including road safety.

Person Type

A person who:

  • Female only due to toileting aspect
  • Has excellent time keeping skills
  • Car driver essential due to location.
  • Is confident in dealing with challenging behaviour.
  • Is calm and consistent in their approach.
  • Is vigilant as I have no safety awareness.
  • Is patient but firm.
  • Experience of Autism preferred.
