The Scottish Women’s Autism Network (SWAN) was formed in 2012 with a mission to ensure that Scotland is a home where autistic women and girls can flourish. We empower autistic women and girls by running peer-support local groups across Scotland, manage online forums, work to raise levels of knowledge and understanding through participatory and lived-experience research. We then share what we learn, work collaboratively with other charities, other organisations and with Scottish Government, to advise, inform, educate and advocate.

SWAN now seeks three new trustees to join the current Board of six members. The role of Treasurer will become vacant in January 2021 and, as such, good accounting skills would be required. In addition, post a Board skills audit SWAN is looking to recruit individuals with general business skills with a focus on fund-raising, business development, marketing, and or legal, and the ability to be a strong advocate for the charity.
