A Shared Understanding
Connecting the Volunteering Sector and the Autistic Community
Our aim within this step is to provide you with some basic information regarding autism, covering some common characteristics, the importance of language and how you can begin to start thinking about preparing your volunteering organisation to become more autism affirming.
We hope to develop a shared understanding of autism, working to create a stronger connection between two unique and thriving communities.
First, we recommend jumping into our resource “What is Autism?” to gain a deeper understanding of the diverse experiences and valuable skills that the autistic community can bring to the volunteering sector.
