As a support worker, you'll give people with learning disabilities the confidence and encouragement to become more independent.

He can display challenging behaviour so you must have previous experience of working with people with learning disabilities and challenging behaviour.
The important thing is that you have the compassion and integrity to treat people with respect.
A full UK driving license and access to your own vehicle will be ideal.
On a daily basis, you may also be involved in support him with the following activities:
- Cooking and cleaning
