Please note that this vacancy is not part of Surrey County Council, we are advertising this on behalf of a partnership organisation.
About the role
We need play workers who enjoy making a difference to children with disabilities and complex health needs by running fun and meaningful activities for them to learn and socialise.
Crossroads Care Surrey is a leading, registered Charity that has been supporting Carers for over 30 years. Our core purpose is to improve the quality of life of unpaid Carers and the people for whom they care.
So, what is it that we provide for our clients?
IT’S ABOUT TIME!
We provide respite breaks to help ease the strain on unpaid carers, giving them a few hours to themselves by taking over the care duties. One of the ways we do this is through our Saturday Children’s Club. The Club provides a safe environment for children with disabilities and complex health needs to have fun, learn and socialise.
OUR CLIENTS REALLY NEED US...
We understand the invaluable job that Carers do and, the negative impact that being on call 24/7 for many years can have on their own health. Even taking a break for a few hours a week can make a positive difference.
...AND WE REALLY NEED YOU!
With over 108,000 people in Surrey who look after a friend or relative who cannot manage without care and support, we are expanding our services and recruiting Play Workers to provide a first-class service for Carers through our Saturday Children’s Club.
Purpose of the Role:
· To provide short breaks for families of children with special needs.
· To assist the staff team in running a programme of interesting leisure activities for such children appropriate to their needs and abilities.
· To enable children to participate in the activities provided and have positive experiences.
