Weekend Buddies – halow Project

Contracted Weekend Buddies

Do you want to make a real difference to the lives of young people with a learning disability? Then become a member of the halow care team. We are currently looking for people on a contracted weekend basis to join our team of halow Buddies (Support Workers) to provide 1:2:1 support to our young people with learning disabilities promoting life skills, independence, social skills, leisure opportunities and assisting young people to access the local and wider community in ways which best suit them. Buddies and young people are matched according to their hobbies, interests and other individual needs.

The hours will be variable covering weekends, which could fit around your life style or studies and meet the needs of our young people. There may be a possibility for more hours at sometimes short notice.

Although training will be given you must share our passion that these young people have the right to the same life choices and chances as any other young person.

All of our Buddies must have access to a car and have a full clean driving licence.

All of our Buddies are DBS checked and receive a full induction, training, and supervision with opportunities to progress. Training modules include first aid, epilepsy awareness, safeguarding adults among many others.
