    Transforming Autism Project

First and foremost, you will believe in the huge potential within each autistic child, and will deeply resonate with our mission, our values and our particular understanding of and approach to autism. You will feel inspired by these and invested in them, and motivated to bring into your life a passion and inner commitment to help realise them, and thereby to act as a natural ambassador for the charity in the wider community.

You are likely to have extensive personal experience of at least one (ideally both) of charity work/governance and autism.  A large relevant personal network and an ability to raise funds would be very extremely beneficial.

Given our current stage of development, it is important for us all to work closely together towards a common goal of success of the charity. Therefore, this is not the sort of Trustee role that requires turning up for the occasional meeting, delivering a few actions and dealing with a few emails. We need our Trustees to be fully integrated and invested in the charity and actively dedicated to its success. You will therefore form an active part of our team (currently at around 25 volunteers) in a capacity we can discuss and decide on together.

You will also be dedicated to consistently positive and mutually affirming relationships with the charity Executive – based on trust, openness, transparency, true partnership and consistent mutual support and positive regard. You will take joint ownership of ensuring the success of such relationships.
