You did not enter a postcode in the search, or the postcode for this role is unknown.

Why we need you

The charity has around 100 branches, all run by volunteers, who provide local support to people on the autism spectrum. Every branch is different and so are the activities they provide – they may run parent support groups, adult social groups, children’s activities, conferences or focus on providing information or campaigning. However, no matter how big or small, all branches are hugely valued by the people in their local area.

Support groups/ activities are essential for the autistic community seeking support. They provide a safe opportunity for adults to socialise, meet others who also have autism, share their own experiences and listen to others

Advertising the support group (posters, leaflets, etc.)

Sharing information (full training will be given)
