Autism Berkshire looks for new trustees to help us make difference

Autism Berkshire is looking for more volunteer trustees to help guide its work delivering a wide range of advice, support, training and leisure activities throughout the county.

A key role that needs to be filled on our board is that of Treasurer, so interest from people with financial management expertise would be particularly welcome, along with people who have a personal commitment to making a difference to the lives of autistic individuals and their families.

Anyone who would like to know more about what the role involves should contact our office on 01189 594 594 or email us at admin@autismberkshire.org.uk or call our chair of trustees, Ewan Duncan, on 07584 494003.

Autism Berkshire’s chief executive officer, Jane Stanford-Beale, said: “We would like to hear from people with a range of skills and diverse backgrounds, to reflect the different aspects of our work and the communities we serve.

“We deliver services across the county, so we would encourage people to consider becoming a trustee wherever they live in Berkshire.”

New trustees will be elected to the board at the charity’s annual meeting later this month.

The AGM will be held on the evening of Monday, November 26, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel at Caversham Bridge, Reading.
