The Transforming Autism Project is a brand-new charity focusing on very early intervention for children with autism with a view to making transformative life-long changes. We are looking to recruit our first Board of Trustees.

What will you be doing?

We are at a very early stage in our life as a charity and are looking to set up a working Trustee Board for the first time.  As such, our Board needs to be an operational rather than a purely governing one for this initial period, which, together with the CEO, will be the engine driving the establishment of the charity – being seen internally and externally as active charity leaders, pushing things forward, opening doors and being actively and enthusiastically involved in the development and execution of initiatives.

We're looking for a Treasurer to oversee our finances, and help us to effectively plan ahead.

This makes the opportunity an exciting and potentially very rewarding one for Trustees who like the sound of this, as they will be truly at the heart of turning our important mission into a reality, building a culture with our values at the centre, and establishing ourselves as a credible force offering real value to society.

It would be ideal if all or the majority of our Board is within travelling distance of London to make it possible to meet when needed, though we will consider other arrangements for exceptional candidates from further afield.  Our charity is based in TW13, though currently with no offices.

What are we looking for?

As we are at a very early stage in our life as a charity and are looking to set up a working Trustee Board for the first time.  As such, our Board needs to be an operational rather than a purely governing one for this initial period, which, together with the CEO, will be the engine driving the establishment of the charity – being seen internally and externally as active charity leaders, pushing things forward, opening doors and being actively and enthusiastically involved in the development and execution of initiatives.

We are looking for people to serve as Trustees who:

  • are deeply passionate about our charity’s mission and values (perhaps with a personal connection to autism)
  • can bring experience, specialist skills and a strong relevant network (at least one person should have strong understanding/experience of how to set up a charity board and make it successful.  Other key skills we are looking for are: a Fundraiser, a Treasurer, a credible Autism Specialist, a lawyer)
  • have the availability and commitment to actively and energetically drive the charity forwards

This makes the opportunity an exciting and potentially very rewarding one for Trustees who like the sound of this, as they will be truly at the heart of turning our important mission into a reality, building a culture with our values at the centre, and establishing ourselves as a credible force offering real value to society.

What difference will you make?

The Transforming Autism Project is a brand-new charity focusing on very early intervention for children with autism with a view to making transformative life-long changes that would not be possible later. We challenge the traditional understanding of autism and propose an inspiring, hopeful and truly empowering perspective. For more details, see our TED talk, below, which has now been watched by almost 100,000 people.

Our goal is to truly transform lives through our life-changing Mifne Treatment Centre and our unique online Hub of comprehensive guidance, support, education and community for parents of autistic children.

To find out more about our goals, values and activities, please view our website.

 

What's in it for the volunteer?

Our opportunity will allow you to make a difference to lives of children with Autism, their families, friends, and any other people they may come in to contact with. You will be part of a process that will change lives, improve futures and educate the public.

We aim to make our team a very friendly one with energy and passion.

A few more details

The recruitment process will consist of the following steps:

  • An informal initial call with a recruiter
