Bristol Autism Support is a small but ambitious registered charity. We provide a lifeline of support and information for parents and carers of autistic children, either diagnosed or undiagnosed, in BS postcodes and BaNES.
What we need
To help us grow, we need experienced members of the public to join our Board of Trustees. We are particularly interested in recruiting members of our local community who have experience of caring for an autistic individual of any age, or are autistic themselves and also one or more of the following skills:
- Expertise in marketing, PR or event management
- Experience of fundraising
- Financial management experience
- Strong writing ability, to write for our website and marketing materials
- Solid administrative experience
- General business experience
We are also keen to recruit Trustees from the BaME community.
The Board is responsible for setting the strategy and future direction of Bristol Autism Support and guides and supports the Chief Executive.
Board meetings are held once a month via Zoom. They are held in the evenings from 7.30pm and alternate between Mondays and Wednesdays and last 1-1.5 hours. In addition to this, Trustees are required to carry out subcommittee work as and when needed. Trustees generally give around 2-4 hours of their time each month.
The GOV.UK website has extensive information regarding trustee roles and responsibilities here. Interested parties may also request to see our Constitution.
The deadline for this round of Trustee recruitment is Monday 15th December 2020.
