6772 - Assistant Project Worker
Barnardo's Home Links is a long established short break family support service for disabled children, and young people. Short break care (sometimes called respite care) gives children an opportunity to have fun, share experiences and socialise outside of their home life while giving their parents or carers a brief break from caring. Home Links works in partnership with Belfast Health & Social Care Trust and provides support to children living in the greater Belfast area.
We have 6.5hr and 9.75 hr posts available in our new after school service. You will be required to support a child or young person with a learning disability on a 1-1 basis alongside other staff in a small group after school setting at our premises on the Belmont Road. The role includes transporting the child from home or school and home again so you will require a full driving licence and access to a car. You will receive mileage expenses, training and ongoing support.
