Project Description:
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. Relationships 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 community 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 expectations 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 achieved. Think of it this way: you are setting out on a personal learning experience while helping the person in your care to themselves embark on a similar voyage of discovery. Their needs are paramount at all times.

Requirements: We would like someone interested in social issues, willing to learn, flexible ’can do attitude’ and be able to communicate in English.

Food: All food is provided

Accommodation: We provide living accommodation and full board. Volunteers will have their own bedroom but all other accommodation is shared.
