GIVE a little of your TIME and make a BIG difference!
St Michael’s house is recruiting Home Sharing – Host Families.
Make a difference in the lives of children and adults with a learning disability and their families by giving them a much needed break.
Become a Home Sharing – Host Family.
Home sharing is where people like you in the community are recruited, assessed trained and supported to provide short breaks in their home, for children or adults with a disability. The frequency of breaks depends on your availability, some host families provide day care breaks, and others provide a short weekend break every month, whilst others might provide breaks over holiday periods. There is 24/7 support for host families. During the assessment process you have the opportunity to discuss the level of care you can provide and the person best matched to your family
We welcome everyone to apply, whether you are in a relationship or single, young or old, with or without children, from all walks of life and living in all kinds of housing.
You don’t need a qualification; you do need to be caring, energetic and enthusiastic!
You’ll be given training, ongoing support and an allowance.
