DPSS626 - Personal Assistant - 7 hours per week - Pontardawe (Ref: V000626)

Location: Pontardawe
Pay: £12.00
Closing: 07/05/2027


I am an amazing 9-year-old boy who has Cerebral palsy and other complex health needs, including physical, cognitive and communication.  I need lots of support with personal care, but I don’t let this hold me back or define who I am.  I attend a local school and after school I need additional support to help me to enjoy social and leisure activities and to help with my therapy programmes.

I am described by the people who know me best as ‘infectious, bubbly and cheeky.’  I am sociable and have a great sense of humour.  I love playing with my cars and trains and am looking forward to going to activities such as skiing.

I am looking for an enthusiastic, fun, patient, and reliable personal assistant to help me engage in activities and to provide some respite for my mum, who is my main support.  You will need to be calm and patient under pressure with the ability to work your hours flexibly.
