About the job

I’m a teenager living in a children’s home, I’m the only child who lives there and I have a team of care workers who take care of me. Day to day, this is what my care workers do:

· Help me get up in the morning and get me to school for the day, teach me how important education is. Help me with my homework.

· Help me get washed, dressed and teach me how to look after myself.

· Take me to my doctor’s appointments and teach me how to keep healthy.

· Help me work on my behaviour, help me stick to the ground rules and celebrate my achievements with me.

· Help me build up my relationships with my family, help me make good friendships with other teenagers.

· Listen to me and if I tell you I’m not happy or worried about something, do something to make it better.

· Help me learn about lots of things to help me in all areas of my life, have regular chats and little lessons with me.

· Take me out on lots of activities, take me away on holiday, help me have a wide range of experiences, and build up my hobbies.

· Keep me safe from harm, protect me from danger, help me stick to the rules so that I stay safe. Teach me how to keep myself safe.

· Teach me things to help me build up the skills I will need to live a happy life when I move out when I am older.

· Keep my home clean, tidy, safe and a warm cosy place to be.

· Keep a diary of what happens each day, and write a report if something more serious happens.

· Follow the plans that the manager writes to help me hit my goals, and think of new ways to help me hit my goals if the plans aren’t working.
