Sitter/Befriender for Children and Young People with Special Needs

Are you looking for more than just a job? Ruils offers a Sitting & Befriending Service to families with children who have disabilities living in the London Borough of Richmond (LBR) and Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames (RBK). 

The service provides families with access to:

  • Sitters to enable them to go out and have a break, and
  • Befrienders who enable children and young people to engage in social and leisure activities

As a Sitter / Befriender you can work for more than one family, and families can use more than one Sitter / Befriender. You will be employed by Ruils as a casual worker on a sessional basis and paid monthly in arrears. 

Hours will be agreed with the family (sometimes in conjunction with Ruils) but you should have a minimum of 3-4 hours a week available (daytime or evening) and be able to commit to providing a service for at least a year. 

You must work, study or live within easy travelling distance of LBR and / or RBK and have previous experience working with children. You can work as both a babysitter and a befriender or you may choose which role you would like to fulfil.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and interviews will be set up individually.
