Closing Date: 20/05/24

Job Purpose:
I am a 15-year-old teenager with social difficulties, and I am looking for someone who would have positive effect on my understanding where I fit into the world. My emotional intelligence and maturity are lower than my age but I like acting as teenager. I would ideally want someone who is an older teenager/early twenties male. Someone who would be able to provide firm and consistent boundaries and equally help me to engage in fun activities. Someone who would be like a big brother type figure for me, and I could relate to and ask for support with my social interactions. I expect everyone to believe what I say even though this may be lies and can exhibit behavioural difficulties if I am challenged about my story. I expect trust but can have little respect for other people. I can be easily led by peers to unsafe behaviours so need support to learn how to integrate into the society appropriately.
I am a fun-loving person and have interest in aircrafts, mechanics, cars and bikes. You would provide support for activities in the community which could range from having a walk around the city, stopping for a bite to eat (I like fish and chips) going to park. Playing football, climbing in the park or biking. You would ideally have similar interests to mine. I need a positive role model and someone who will allow me to be myself and open up about my feelings and someone I could ask for advice. I have low self-esteem so you would also support me to gain a positive feeling about myself.
