This opportunity is for our THEMED NIGHTS GROUP where people with additional support needs meet monthly to participate in pre-arranged themed social activities e.g. Superheroes Theme Night, that help them improve their confidence and social skills through engaging in group activities in a safe environment. Along with a team leader the facilitator will demonstrate their own willingness to be involved in activities, encouraging group members to participate, engage socially, demonstrate appropriate behavior and promote an inclusive culture.
