Accessible Role Descriptions: A Checklist
Volunteering role descriptions are primarily aimed at articulating the responsibilities of a role and the skills required. They can serve as a reference point for organisations and individuals to discuss the expectations of a role and what is involved from day-to-day. We have suggested two changes that can make these descriptions more accessible for autistic volunteers.
Where can I make this change: We have used the example template in Volunteering Australia’s resource ‘Designing Volunteer Roles & Position Descriptions’ as a reference to where you can make these changes when designing volunteer descriptions. These changes relate to describing ‘Key Responsibilities’ and ‘Skills, Experience & Attributes’ within Volunteering Australia’s template and are aimed at increasing accessibility.
