On Monday’s his SEN Support Worker will drive his WAV for the school run, and driving is also required at the weekends, therefore it is essential that you are confident driving an adapted automatic vehicle. Zach’s parents can be very flexible for the right person / people joining his team; we would not expect someone to commit to every weekend, and we have additional hours available to cover leave etc.
