Disabled artist needs an assistant to help him.

3 afternoons per week

3 weekends per month or evenings

The artist needs someone to assist with his artwork in his studio at the back of his home. He is an established artist selling work in his local area. He likes to paint and needs assistance to set up and clear away as well as some practical support with his materials.

He does require some personal assistance to have lunch and to go to the loo (you will be fully trained to provide this support and his family provide all other assistance).

He also plays boccia and likes to go out to art galleries, events as well as his local pub.

This is a very easy-going placement where you will have a laugh and get to go out and about in the local area as well as further afield in and around London. Having a driving licence is useful but not essential as local transport is very accessible.

You need to be easy going and don’t mind going to the pub as well as being happy around dogs.
