The brand-new West Cheshire Autism Hub is on the lookout for enthusiastic volunteers to support the project, which is a welcoming space for autistic adults and their families to visit and access a range of different services.
After launching virtually last summer, the Autism Hub will officially open its doors at The Bluecoat very soon, with plenty of opportunities to volunteer and make a real difference to the lives of autistic adults and their families.
A busy timetable of services is being put together at the Autism Hub and volunteers can play a key part, offering a range of support to autistic adults and their families visiting The Bluecoat.
Any relevant training will be offered to volunteers and roles and tasks will be adapted wherever possible to meet volunteers’ own needs. All volunteering will be done in line with the latest COVID-19 guidance, with the relevant policies and procedures in place.
Roles at the Autism Hub are flexible and autistic adults, as well as their families, are encouraged to get involved with volunteering should they be interested. People who can access services at the Autism Hub are at the very heart of everything it does.
Karen McGuinness, Strategy Manager at the Autism Hub, said: “This is going to be an extremely valuable service for autistic adults and their families across Cheshire West and Chester.
“We’ve had a lot of interest since we launched virtually last year and we can’t wait to start welcoming autistic adults and their families to The Bluecoat.
“This is a great opportunity for volunteers to meet new people, learn new skills, gain experience and have a positive impact on others at the same time.
“If you’re interested in volunteering with us, please get in touch. We’re flexible and can fit volunteering roles and tasks around any other commitments you have.”
The Autism Hub is using Cheshire West Voluntary Action’s (CWVA) brand-new volunteering platform to recruit volunteers.
