About the role

“The best thing about my job is that I get to work alongside a child or young person and help them learn new skills and become independent. When I am successful, I get to see a child move on and flourish because they no longer need that support and it feels amazing.

“This is my third year working as part of the Sensory Support Team and I can honestly say that no two days are the same – in fact often no two hours are the same! It is a fulfilling, challenging and very rewarding role and the Sensory Support Team are fabulous and incredibly welcoming.”

“I love working here. I walk in and it just makes me smile.”
