Further Details: The Chiltern Centre for Disabled Children is looking for a full-time committed, enthusiastic learning disabilities nurse or paediatric nurse with a sense of fun to join our wonderful team. We are a respite centre in Henley-on-Thames for children and young adults (ages 6-25 years) with learning disabilities and a range of other needs including epilepsy, enteral feeding, complex health needs including breathing difficulties, cerebral palsy, sensory impairments, autism, and challenging behaviour to name but a few. At The Chiltern Centre we provide a “home away from home” where young people come for overnight stays and day visits, challenge their limitations and have fun accessing a range of activities both inside the Centre and in the community while their families have a well-earned break. The nursing role requires you to work according to a shift rota including some weekends and sleep-ins to meet the needs of the young people accessing the Centre, to act as keyworker to a small number of young people and their families, and to use your clinical skills to support our team including providing staff training and assessing competence.
