About us

The North East Autism Society is the largest specialist provider of whole life support and services for people with autism, learning difficulties and disabilities in the North East. Each year we support over 500 children, young people and adults with autism to achieve their aspirations. We also provide vital support to their immediate and extended families. We are the leading voice concerning autism and neurodiversity in the North of England and are passionate advocates for the skills, talents and abilities of people with autism.

Why you want to volunteer with us

We are currently recruiting for volunteers to work in our Fundraising team in the North East and have a couple of different roles to suit the interests of people who may be looking to go into an event career such as:

Administration support for events (office based) from now ongoing

Event support (on event days) ongoing

You will be given full training for all roles and will be supported throughout your time as a volunteer by your line manager and staff. You will also be reimbursed for all out-of-pocket expenses so volunteering will cost you nothing but time!


Commitment varies depending on your role. You can attend one off days, or be more heavily involved.
