Charity registered in Scotland SC039427
The National Autistic Society is a leading UK charity for adults, young people and Children with autism and their families. We provide information, pioneering support services and campaign for a better world for people with autism. We are proud of the difference we make.
The National Autistic Society is the UK’s leading charity for autistic people. Since 1962, we’ve been transforming lives, changing attitudes and helping to create a society that works for autistic adults and children.
We transform lives by providing support, guidance and practical advice for the 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK, as well as their three million family members and carers. Autistic people turn to us at key moments or challenging times in their lives, be it getting a diagnosis, going to school or finding work.
We change attitudes by improving public understanding of autism and the difficulties many autistic people face. We also work closely with businesses, local authorities and government to help them provide more autism-friendly spaces, deliver better services and improve laws.
We have come a long way but it is not good enough. There is still so much to do to increase opportunities, reduce social isolation and build a brighter future for people on the spectrum. With your help, we can make it happen.
What we can offer you:
Passionate about developing opportunities for autistic adults, you will bring experience of volunteer recruitment and management as well as knowledge of monitoring and evaluation systems to the role. You will be based at NAS’s Glasgow Office with some travel across local authorities to meet volunteers, autistic adults and host Coffee Clubs.
We are committed to transforming individual lives and changing society’s attitudes. If this sounds like the role for you, we would love to hear from you.
This is a fixed term position until July 2022.
