Providing specialist support for children and adults with Autism and their families

We are looking for volunteer mentors.

Mentors are needed to provide a supportive relationship and help an autistic young person by building confidence and new skills, reducing isolation, and accessing their local community through participation in activities together.

1. Reliability and Resilience
2. Enthusiasm and a creative approach to solving problem and ideas for practical activities.
3. A non–judgmental approach in working with others
4. Effective Communication skills and a professional approach to volunteering
5. Confidence in working with new people and situations

You will need to be 18 when you start your mentoring.

All our volunteers receive induction training, ongoing training and support, and opportunities for further development and references.

This is a very rewarding role and a great opportunity to make a real positive difference.

As well as supporting young autistic people, you will be learning and developing new skills and meeting people from diverse backgrounds.
