We provide residential, day care and respite accommodation to approximately 88 children and young adults (12 to 25 years old) with a wide variety of special needs. Care, education, therapy and creative activities are integrated. Relation- ships and social interaction, based on mutual care and respect, promote health development and resilience along with physical and emotional wellbeing.
Our children and young adults belong to a house community. Each house commu- nity varies in size and accommodates approximately 5/10 children/young adults and 10/12 senior co-workers and volunteers.
Work: Your major responsibility at all times is to the child/young adult in your care, whether in the classroom or the house. The task is to care for and to educate each child/young adult to the fullest extent possible. As a new co-worker you will be helped by more experienced colleagues to learn how to establish a successful relationship with the child/young adult, how to gauge what expecta- tions to have for the individual, and how to develop each person’s potential to the fullest extent possible, so that maximum independence and self-reliance are
