Commitment

  • The charity has over 100 branches and groups, 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.
  • The branch chair role is vital to the running of the branch as they act as a leader and a coordinator for the branch. Without these roles, we would not have as many branches as we do.

What else do I need to know?

  • We seek applications from anyone interested in the role, but particularly welcome applications from those on the autistic spectrum.

  • Agreed expenses paid

Background checks
