We are looking for a flexible, creative and child centred experienced Learning, Care and Therapy Practitioner to join our multidisciplinary team. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a creative service that is remodelling integrated therapy, care and learning for children and young people affected by neurological conditions.

Our aim is simple; to support children, young people and their families to attain and maintain the highest level of holistic wellbeing possible.

Multidisciplinary teams around the child work collaboratively alongside parents maximising the benefit from Centre and community resources to give children and young people exceptional experiences to achieve ambitious outcomes. You will have an opportunity to work across the range of Centre services with children of all ages from prenursery through to 18 years. Our ethos is to get it right for every child helping children and young people gain the knowledge, skills and attributes needed for life in the 21st century.
