Riding Lights Theatre Company are looking for hosts to help them look after the actors who come to York for rehearsals and tours. Hosting requires a spare room with a proper bed in it, provision of breakfast and sometimes dinner (by negotiation), and a willingness to let a stranger share your home for a few days or weeks (a sense of humour also helps!). All the actors are 100% housetrained and zero percent goose.
Hospitality from the church community is at the heart of Riding Lights, enabling them to work as widely as they do. It is a great way to offer practical support to the company. If you would like to take part in Riding Lights’ ministry through this valuable gift of hospitality they would love to hear from you.
Please do get in touch by emailing Bethan on email@example.com, or phoning 01904 655317.

From Raymond and Karen Allen:
We have been members of The Belfrey for many years and we are looking to employ someone to work with a 19-year old young man who has Asperger's syndrome.
This would be for about 6 hours a week over Monday and Wednesday or possibly sometime at a weekend. The young person attends College Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. There is some flexibility depending on your availability.
The work will involve:
1. Having fun and engaging the young person in social / sports activities outside the home e.g. Gym, swimming, cycle track or at home on the computer or Wii Console. If he is interested it may also be appropriate to introduce him to your own activity.
2. Helping him develop independence and social skills associated with the activity.
3. Supervising the young person at home while parents are at work.
Ideally you need to have some practical knowledge / experience of Aspergers syndrome. However, being patient and understanding and having a sense of humour will help, alongside a willingness to learn about Autism. Having a car would be helpful as it makes it easier to get to most activities.
We use a company called Salvere recommended by the local authority to manage payroll, insurance and references etc.
If you are interested and would like further information, please contact Raymond Allen via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
