Firsthand Lothian

1:1 support - doing activities with children both at home & local community which provides regular respite for parent/carers. You will build children’s confidence & social skills & you will both have fun in the process. You can work alongside experienced staff if you want to gain experience in child care.


Current opportunity

If you want to gain experience in childcare or disability then this role is the one for you! You will be matched with a child or young person who you will meet with on a regular basis spending 1:1 time with them, having fun whilst doing things and going places that they enjoy. Many parents are isolated and have no family living locally or friends who they can ask to help them out in times of need. Families with child/ren with a disability struggle to have any time away from their caring role.
