About me & my family
Hi, I’m 6 years old boy. I’m happy, energetic, loveable & a lot of fun & I need a friend by my side to help guide me & keep me safe whilst I experience the world. I’m looking for somebody to help me live my best life for around 5 – 7 hours on Saturdays (additional weekdays on school holidays / half-terms if possible). I am autistic & am nonspeaking, but my understanding is always improving & I use my iPad to communicate. I live in Worthing with my Mum, Dad, 4-year-old brother & Dog. My half-brother visits a lot too – he’s 15.

I need you to be engaged & stay with me during activities & not just leave me to it. I need you to explain, encourage & support me so I can get the most out of the experience. You’ll need to bring your energy with you!
