Josh, 6, is a happy and outgoing young chap who loves getting out and about on day trips with his family, as well as having more relaxing story-time moments in his home. Josh has dystonic cerebral palsy; he is non-verbal, has his medication administered via PEG and uses a hoist. We are looking for a professional and confident team leader to work with Josh on a rota basis.

The position will involve supporting Josh in the community and at home and overseeing and managing a small care team. You will follow guidelines outlined by Josh’s parents, work in partnership with and support them to promote Josh’s independence. All aspects of Josh’s medication will be undertaken by the team leader/ support worker, including administration via PEG, suctioning, keeping records and reporting any concerns to the family.

This role would suit confident, energetic and positive team leader who has experience working with young children with physical disabilities. Ideally you will have previous experience of supervising a team, experience of Peg feeding and suctioning, but full training is provided by the family. You must be willing to accompany Josh to the synagogue.
