Holly aged 11 is an incredibly endearing young lady who is bubbly and has a winning smile. She is real a ‘girly girl’; she loves everything to do with hair, make-up and shopping. She also really enjoys crafts of all kinds and likes to assist with cooking.

Holly has spinal bifida and receptive language delay. She uses a wheelchair and requires assistance with toileting (she is catheterized several times a day and also requires bowel care). Holly is becoming much more independent with dressing but this is still an area she may need occasional help. Holly can become quite frustrated at times and because she is unable to storm off she can be hurtful with her words instead.  On these occasions you do just need to walk away and let her rant.

You will play a key role in Holly’s after school routine, assisting with her personal care but also interacting and engaging in fun activities. This job will suit someone who is fun, has a good sense of humour and is able to just go with the flow at times. *A degree of flexibility will be good as the family are looking for someone who would be available to ‘live in’ when mum travels. You will be given advanced notice and an extended family member will be present in the home.

This is a wonderful opportunity for someone who is looking to make a difference and gain more experience in the SEN field. This is an incredibly warm, welcoming and fun family who are excited to meet you!

*Gender is considered to be a genuine occupational requirement in accordance with paragraph 1 of Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010 for a female worker to work with our client.
