National Autistic Society South Lanarkshire Branch
About the Role
The charity has around 100 branches, all run by volunteers, who provide local support to autistic people and their families. Every branch is different and so are the activities they provide – they may run parent support groups, adult social groups, children’s activities, conferences or focus on providing information or campaigning. However, no matter how big or small, all branches are hugely valued by the people in their local area.
Branches are run entirely by volunteers with advice and support from the national charity.
The branch covers all of South Lanarkshire council which ranges from suburban areas of Glasgow all the way down to remote villages in the Clyde Valley. Some additional volunteers are required to help increase presence of the branch in the south of the region.
