We are seeking a new Full-Time staff member who shares our values and has the experience and skills to support adults with learning disabilities on a one-to-one basis to participate in meaningful work within our day service. The post is based in The May group which is the hub for general arts, crafts and therapeutic activities. Together with our members with learning disabilities we aim to produce unique items for our annual fairs and for our community. Our work mainly focuses on weaving, felting and papercraft. We value and often focus on crafts around seasonal changes and preparation for specific festivals. Ideally you would have an interest in one of the craft areas, however this is not essential.
