East Kent Mencap are looking for a companion who would like to spend time with one of our older tenants on a regular basis. She is active and frequently likes to go on days out and weekends away. She loves spending time out and about and is looking for a mature female to share her love of arts and crafts, accompany her on trips, and have a chat over coffee on Wednesday and/or Thursday afternoons. This role would suit someone who is laid back and cheerful, with a good sense of humour.
