Why we need you
The charity has over 100 branches and groups, 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.
The branch offers support and information to autistic adults and their families in the area which covers Bristol, South Glos, BaNES and the northern area of North Somerset.
The branch website role ensures that anyone accessing the website receives the right information about the branch and that it is up to date. This is vital to help the branch run well and also has a huge influence on the reputation of the branch in the local area.
