Committee Member Volunteer Cornwall Branch
Who we are :
The National Autistic Society is here to transform lives, change attitudes and create a society that works for autistic people.
We transform lives by providing support, information and practical advice for the 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK, as well as their three million family members and carers.
Since 1962, autistic people have turned 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.
Why we need you
The charity has around 100 branches, all run by volunteers, who provide local support to people on the autism spectrum. Every branch is different and so are the activities they provide they may run parent support groups, adult social groups, children’s activities, conferences or focus on providing information or campaigning.
However, no matter how big or small, all branches are hugely valued by the people in their local area.
We have a couple of people interested in setting up a branch in the Newham area but they are looking for additional volunteers to help them form a committee.
What you will be doing
There are lots of ways you could be involved, if you are interested, contact us for more information.
