Who will you be supporting?
Hi, I am looking for someone relaxed and at ease with themselves, and others in relation to sexuality, relationships, and gender.

I am in my 20's, and I want to explore my ideas around sexuality, relationships & gender in a fun, safe and enjoyable way. I am looking for someone who will come with ideas, to work with me up to 16 hours a week.

This will be a role out there, in the world with me, in the Canterbury area. Helping me explore my ideas, in clubs, in groups and safe spaces. I would like you to have a good font of knowledge and able to have a laugh and Joke.

I have autism and can get anxious. Without the right support, I can sometimes get angry and frustrated with people around me. I have had some terrible experiences in the past, with the people supporting me, hurting me, and letting me down. So, trust can take time, but when I do, we will have so much fun.

I need people to help me who are kind, caring, have a sense of humour, calm, consistent and compassionate. When I am anxious you will need to be able to oversee these times calmly and after a tough day, step into the next holding no grudges.

Job purpose
Person-centred care is more than just meeting the basic needs of those we support. It is about addressing their sexual needs too. You will create an open culture where the person you support feels comfortable discussing their relationships and sexuality. By doing so, jointly you can promote healthy adult sexual relationships and empower them to make their own decisions.

Supporting someone in this area can be a delicate topic. Can you be open, relaxed and non-judgemental discussing the following topics?
Sex, masturbation, sensuality, physical intimacy, romance, and physical attraction.
Gender identity - the sense that we are male or female or not aligned with either
Sexual orientation, including heterosexual, homosexual and bisexual.
Personal dress, body image, personal grooming, and sexual expression.It is important to remember that everyone has the right to explore their sexuality in a safe and consensual way. As an enabler, you will help create an safe space where the person you support feels at ease expressing their desires and needs.

Promoting an open culture around sexuality
Respect the independence and dignity of person you support.
Assist the person you support to live their lives the way they want to.
Ensure they are protected from harm
