Job Role

Position: Support Worker (supported living)
Location: Folkestone, Kent
Salary: £9.25 per hour and benefits
Details: Full or part, permanent, excellent training 

Hi, my name is Joshua and I'm shortly going to be living in my own home in Folkestone, Kent and will be supported by SeeAbility.

Experience supporting people like me, a man with autism, would be essential.  I am looking for calm, patient and positive Support Workers (preferably females) to join my team. You need to support me to lead the life I want and to encourage me to be gradually more and more skilled and confident.

Whilst I need a quiet and happy environment in my home, I enjoy visiting castles and swimming so I’d love it if you liked these things too. 

I also like Harry Potter and Disney Pixar!

I’d love for people to join my team who have the same interests as me so they would need to be physically fit, and 100% reliable. I have autism and sometimes my behaviour can be challenging but that shouldn’t stop me doing the things I love and leading an active life.

Sometimes I’ll need your encouragement to learn life skills and gain independence but that’s something everyone needs at times; as long as you are gentle, can see the value in small gains, will follow coaching from my behaviour support person and are willing to help when needed we will get along just fine!

Who are SeeAbility?

SeeAbility encourages people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society. The people we support overcome huge barriers to achieve exciting new things every day: some big, some small, all extraordinary. They challenge us all to rethink disability.
