The Autism Group: Club Volunteer (one Saturday per month working with YP with ASD)
If you would like to help a young person with Autism to join in activities at a Special Interest Group then you would be an ideal volunteer for us. We run Special Interest Groups for young people on the Autistic Spectrum, to offer them opportunities to socialise and to develop their social skills, using their shared special interest as a starting point. Volunteers help us to make the club enjoyable for participants by providing a calm, safe environment with interesting activities. Volunteers help us to develop the confidence and social skills of the participants by encouraging and supporting them to participate in the activities and have fun. In practical terms this means helping to set up and pack away a equipment required for the session, helping with provision of refreshments and offering support to attendees to participate and have fun, even joining in the activities with them if required.
