Are you looking for an exciting new challenge to work within a charity that provides positive activities and opportunities to children and young people?

Our Specialist Short Breaks Service Groups provide friendships, independence and fun experiences and opportunities for children and young people with a range of disabilities and individual needs while providing respite for their carers from their caring responsibilities.

We are seeking Support Workers to support in the planning and delivery of our Specialist Short Breaks group sessions in Kings Lynn, Attleborough and Fakenham. Sessions are held one Saturday each month and during school holidays. This exciting role is perfect for those seeking the opportunity to earn an income whilst juggling other commitments.

You will be committed to providing a child centred, fun, safe and positive environment for the children. The group will offer a range of stimulating, play, activities and experiences and will involve the children and young people in the planning of these. You will offer individual and group support to young people with low to moderate support needs and support parents of children with disabilities. You will also support the Senior Practitioners or Practitioners with supporting young people with exceptional and high support needs where there is a 2:1 ratio.

Does this sound like the role for you? If you are experienced or have transferable skills and are looking for a change of career then we would love to hear from you!

The Benjamin Foundation embeds the Nurtured Heart Approach ® which creates strong and improved relationships by focusing on positive behaviour rather than energising negativity, providing clear rules and consequences, creating an environment in which people thrive.
