Seb, 9, is a bright and engaging boy who enjoys being outside on his tricycle and also loves being read to! He has cerebral palsy and developmental delay, which affects his mobility and head control. Seb is fed and has his medication administered via gastrostomy. He is completely dependent on others for all of his personal care, feeding and mobilisation needs.

The role will involve planning and organising activities and outings for Seb over the weekend. Working with Seb you will get a feel for the activities he likes and you must be able to build a good rapport with him in order to enable him to fulfill his potential and enjoy new experiences. Typical duties such as assisting with personal care and implementing therapy programmes are included.
