Job Advert

Peter, is an amateur artist in his 50's and has a learning disability.  He lives in his own house and has regular visits from his support worker, family and friends throughout the week.  Peter would really enjoy the company of a regular visitor, someone he can share his interests in art and gardening with.  He greatly enjoys his sessions with the 'Partners in Art' programme at the Pallant House Art Gallery in Chichester.  He is also a keen gardener and grows his own vegetables and flowers.  

It would be great if you have a car so that together you and Peter can explore further afield however it isn't essential.  He lives close to the town centre which is easily accessible by foot.

Peter would like you to visit on a Wednesday or on weekends.  He is usually busy with his support worker or attending activities in the community on other days. 

It would be great if you could volunteer for at least 1 year and are available on Wednesdays or weekends to visit for a couple of hours every 2 months.
