About this client/child: Noah 11, lives with his two little brothers, one little sister and phenomenal parents. When you first meet Noah, you will be greeted with the cheekiest of smiles and his very sparkly personality; he is the most sociable boy you will ever meet! Noah is always up for a laugh and great fun to be around. He can have moments of stubbornness; Noah has limited expressive language, so can be frustrated at times either when he doesn’t want to do something or is trying to be understood. He adores being out and about and there are great places, clubs, activities available in his local area and beyond. At home, he loves baking, or being in the garden where he has a fab swing and trampoline. Noah has Cerebral Palsy affecting all four limbs.  He is a full-time wheelchair user, requires personal care. He has epilepsy which is controlled.  Most of his nutrition is via his PEG but he does have a blended diet – and he loves food. At school he uses an Eye Gaze, and this is being introduced at home. Noah can, and will make his needs known, by the word ‘yeah’ or, physically pushing things or people away.

Overview of role: This is a 2-1 role so a real ‘Team Noah’ affair. Noah has a fantastic, fully adapted bedroom, bathroom, therapy room. There is also a fully equipped day room for his support workers, all on the ground floor. During school holidays, and weekends, Noah and his family want fun-packed days planned. Weekend shifts available: Saturdays 1 x12 hours per month (07.00 am to 7.00 pm ) and 2 Saturdays x 6 hours per month ( 07.00 am to 1pm), Sundays, ( 07.00 am to 1.00 pm)  Plus term time: Every Thursday, 4.30 pm to 8.30 pm.

Who this job would suit: You will come into this role with plenty of energy and enthusiasm.
