Are you passionate about inclusive communities?

We support people with a learning disability or autism to build friendships to live their life well. To make this happen we have a network of volunteers who make an extraordinary difference helping to reduce loneliness and improve social connections.

We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated individual with extensive experience and understanding of autism. You will work closely with our staff team and volunteers to support autistic people to develop social and communication skills and build confidence.

There are additional difficulties many autistic people face in becoming socially included. The successful candidate will value small breakthroughs as meaningful triumphs. You will help to transform the lives of autistic people to live more independently, enjoy a better quality of life and play an active role in their community.

Can you

· Communicate empathetically and connect easily to others?

· Relish the challenge of finding creative solutions?

· Show determination to make a lasting difference to people?

Then we want to hear from you!
