Our new activity wing in our new Forever Home, which will bring us some world class facilities, including hydro suite, movie and sensory facilities and a dedicated arts, craft and messy play area, is due to open this summer. These new facilities will propel our support offer to a new level and allow us to reach many more families. We are seeking a truly outstanding CYP Champion to help fill these new facilities with smiles and the sound of laughter and fun.

  • someone who enjoys working in an environment that is fast paced and fun?
  • available to work regular evenings and weekends when the activity wing is at its busiest?
