Branch Ad Hoc Volunteer (South Lanarkshire Branch)

Opportunity image

We have 116 volunteer-led branches across the UK, covering almost three quarters of the country. We also have online branches for autistic people with a shared interest, identity or experience. Our hard-working volunteers run support, information and social activities for autistic adults, children and their families in their local area. They also organise and join in with fundraising and campaigning.

Our branches run a huge range of activities. These groups and activities provide a friendly and safe space for parents and families seeking support. Branches always need more helping hands, so as an Ad Hoc Volunteer you can help the branch continue to provide this valuable support.

Do you have a few hours a month to give to volunteering? This role can fit around your responsibilities, and you can decide when and how you would like to volunteer. There is flexibility on the amount of the time you give too. We know our volunteers have busy lives and we do our best to fit around you.

The role is fully supported by the regional Senior Branch Engagement Officer and the other branch volunteers. You will receive full guidance and training for everything you’ll need to do.
