Trustees

Autism Unlimited
Dorset
Unremunerated with expenses covered
Autism Unlimited is one of the largest regional charities in in the UK, supporting people living with autism and their families and educating children and young people. This is a positive and pivotal time for us as we enter an ambitious period of strategic growth and expansion. We know that we have the capacity to double our impact over the next strategic period and it is an exciting time to join our Board. This ambition and sense of purpose is what drives us all and we have exciting plans ahead to change the world for autistic people. With a capital programme in the pipeline, and having recently rebranded, we are poised to extend our service provision across education, support, supporting people into employment and creating more awareness. This ambition and sense of purpose is what drives us all and we have exciting plans ahead to change the world for autistic people.
The Role

Our Board is central to our success, and we are lucky to have a supportive and challenging board who work closely with us to deliver our strategic aims. We are charged with developing our board further now, with an eye to future capabilities and succession and are seeking two new trustees who  demonstrate a deep commitment to support and empower those living with autism. Although we are open to professional background we would welcome people who bring strategic leadership experience in social care or in education.

You do not need to have been a trustee before, all we ask is that you are able to use your professional insight, your strategic ability and your absolute determination to improve the lives of children and adults living with autism.

We want our board to reflect our charity with diversity and lived experience and we are particularly keen to meet people living with autism who might be interested in taking a role.
