PA Wanted – Sittingbourne Area

Hello I am a friendly 13 year old boy who has cerebral palsy and lives
in Sittingbourne.

I need help mainly in term time with a few extra hours during school
holidays. I am funded for 6 hours a week term time and 3 hours a week
in school holidays, although the hours required each week can vary (for
appointments etc).

My parents will employ you to support me at after school clubs and
other social activities. I also need help with my year 8 homework, with
feeding and with personal care. I can operate computers and like to
play Gran Turismo.

Being trained in lifting and handling would be
useful, chatting with me about sport, particularly formula one,
essential.

My main carer has an operation planned in a couple of months and will
not be able to look after me for a while afterwards. My main carer
cannot usually support me in the school holidays so when she is well I
will still require additional help.

Please contact us at sharon.cricketers@blueyonder.co.uk if you are
interested.
