Brief Requirements

We need a highly organised, reliable and responsible individual to provide support in a keyworker role for an autistic young adult as he transitions into early adult life, including moving from his family home into independent accommodation.

The role will involve regular shifts, but the timing and quantity of these will slowly change over time, in discussion with the post-holder, to suit the developing needs and interests of the young adult supported. The nature of the role is likely to develop over time, as the young adult moves out of the family home and into his own accommodation and from being in fulltime education in a school environment, through college and beyond.
Please request job description for full details.
