Do you live a full and active life?

Do you believe that everyone has a right to do so?

Are you willing to be ‘led’ by a young woman who requires some supports to live her ‘good life’?

We are recruiting a team member to provide such supports for a 22-year-old woman called ‘Jane’ who enjoys swimming, socialising, travel, fashion, good food, being on the go and the outdoors. At other times, ‘Jane’ likes to relax through listening to her music or watching her favourite TV shows.

Providing supports to ‘Jane’ to live her good life fosters opportunities to learn and gain experience.  As a team member, the rewards can also be amazing as you:

  • Work in partnership with other(s) who support good lives
  • Become part of a community-based team
  • Have the chance to form lasting relationships

The role is for 24 hours per week to support ‘Jane’ – 6 hours across 4 days. Flexibility is required so that ‘Jane’ can explore opportunities to live her good life.

If you feel that you could be a good match then please apply!
