“I am a 14 year old boy on the Autistic Spectrum, who is outgoing and chatty, and I am looking for a befriender/buddy who is able to motivate and encourage me getting out and about.

I love being outdoors and keeping active, and I would like to access Transition Extreme, trampolining or go rock pooling and outdoor adventuring. I also enjoy gaming and Anime and it would be great if you share my enthusiasm for these subjects.

Ideally, I would like an active, fun and enthusiastic person who could encourage and prompt me to engage with activities, and perhaps explore some new ones.

An understanding of ASD and PDA would be beneficial. Experience working with young adults on the autistic spectrum would be preferred but not essential. If you think this role is for you, please call the number below for an application pack.”

Car driver essential due to rural location

Please note the household has pets.
