Resources for Autism
Resources for Autism is a charity that aims to improve the lives of children and adults who are diagnosed with autism; providing practical autism specific services and support to families. Our services include: Play and Youth Clubs Art and Music Therapy Adult Social Groups Reach Out( Home based Volunteers Support for Families) amongst other services.

We need volunteers to provide a supportive and positive relationship to autistic young people (from 12 to 24 years) to help them build confidence and self-esteem, learn new skills, feel less isolated, work towards goals and access their local community.

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.

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

Time commitment

The mentoring location will depend on where the service user lives and their local community. The service is being offered to young people living in the following locations: Barnet, Brent, Harrow, Hillingdon, Ealing, Hounslow and Richmond.

Volunteers will need to be available for around 2 hours a week for 6 months. Mentoring can be flexible dependent on the service user, and may take place on weekdays, weekends or evenings.
