Please read the Job Description carefully before providing information in this Section of the Application Form. Give details of your previous employment or experience which you think would help you to do this job. *: I am a young adult carer for my mother who suffers from borderline personality disorder. This means i also have plenty of experience around children too, since my duties included caring for my little sister, and my younger brother too. My duties include emotionally supporting my mother, preparing and cooking meals for the family, picking my sister up from school and taking her out on fun day trips, caring for her overnight, making important phone calls on behalf of my mother, cleaning and carrying out other household chores and errands such as food shopping etc. I have experience working in several very busy pubs around Cardiff, which means I have great communication skills as I can deal with difficult customers effectively while remaining calm.  

What qualities do you think are important when working as a personal assistant with a disabled person? *: Patience, using your own initiative, enthusiasm, responsibility, empathy, motivation, being reliable, respectful, happy.  

How do you think you can contribute towards the needs and the independence of a disabled person? *: I am an understanding and enthusiastic person who enjoys caring for other people and making their lives easier. I have the ability to empower children to make decisions and actively involve them in decision-making rather than pushing my ideas on them. I know it is essential to promote independence as much as possible while always being there as extra support. I am a positive person and celebrate small improvements- this makes the child feel good about themself and encourages them. I live locally and have a very flexible schedule, therefore I am always available to take the child out even at short notice. Furthermore, as a young female adult, I feel I could relate well to the child. 

What is it about PA work which appeals to you? *: Personal assistant work in the social care setting is very rewarding and Id love to be able to make a difference in an individuals life since such small tasks for me can be a huge help for someone else. Due to the pandemic many people are lonely or finding it difficult to carry out essential tasks, and I thought now that I am studying from home, and my part-time job has no hours, now is the best time to give back to the community.
