We are committed to ensuring that our board is reflective of the communities that we support, and we encourage applications from those who may not have served on a Board before.

All Trustees will receive an induction and, when appropriate, further training to enable them to fulfil their duties.

We would particularly welcome interest from those with experience in any of the following: Business Management, Finance, Legal, HR, Training, Education, Health & Social Care, PR & Marketing, Fundraising, or some knowledge and understanding of the needs of autistic people.

This is a great chance to join as a Trustee at such an exciting time and be influential in the shaping of the Society’s future direction of travel – John Hodgson, one of our Trustees
