Job Description/Duties

Do you want to make a difference for a young person with autism? Would you enjoy supporting them to develop their independence and social skills? Are you able to commit 4 hours of your time each week?

Meet Millie

I am a 16-year-old girl with autism who enjoys shopping, gaming, badminton, hockey, music, bowling and being around my friends at school. My autism means I sometimes lack confidence in visiting new places and social situations as I can struggle to pick up on social cues and being in noisy, crowded environments can be overwhelming for me. I also have a fear of animals so I need support to build up my confidence to be more comfortable in confrontational situations.
Eventually, my goals are to become more confident in social situations and improve my ability and skills to manage my anxiety. I may find new places and new situations difficult and sometimes present with feeling unwell when I am out of my comfort zone so I need someone who is patient and can support me at my own pace.

You will:
• Support me to manage my anxieties
• Support me in developing my confidence within various groups of people
• Accompany me on outings

Rate of pay
£9.43 per hour Monday to Sunday
