We have several rewarding opportunities to join our team as a volunteer.

Opportunities include helping at a youth group, admin in our office or at home, fundraising, and assisting at events.

We rely on our fabulous volunteers to give their time and energy to support our work and make a difference in the lives of children and families. 

Youth Groups

We offer a great opportunity to volunteer in youth work with children/young adults who are autistic without a Learning Disability. Our youth groups provide a relaxed space for young people to chillout, socialise, play, chat, and make friends.

Activities include arts & crafts, sports games, board games, video gaming, or just chilling and chatting.

We are looking for volunteers to assist with social activities, games, and trips out. No experience is necessary. Our requirements are:

  • A minimum commitment of one year (or one academic year if relevant). 
  • Understanding of autism or a willing ‘on the job’.
  • Able to initiate, encourage, and support socialising and play.
  • Able to work with a small group of young people.
  • Able to use initiative, and work without close support / direction.
  • Have a responsible and mature manner.
  • Reliably attend when expected. You can choose how often you attend – most volunteers commit to weekly attendance but on occasions when they can’t attend they let us know in advance; others attend on set times e.g. alternate weeks or the first session in the month.
  • Patience
  • and a sense of fun.
