Are you an experienced Administrator with great communication skills and a special gift for putting together imaginative multi-media presentations? Would you like to put your experience to work in an environment which makes a positive difference to the lives of people who have a learning disability?

An important topic for people with a learning disability, their families and their staff is the need to have proactive discussions around death and dying.
