Autism Berkshire needs new trustees to help us make a difference to the community

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

One key role that needs to be filled 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 individuals and families living with autism.

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

Autism Berkshire’s chief executive officer, Jane Stanford-Beale, said: “While we are keen to find someone with financial knowledge, we would also like to hear from people with other skills and diverse backgrounds, to reflect the different aspects of our work and the communities we serve.

“While our office is in Reading, we operate throughout 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 next month. The AGM will be held on the evening of Thursday, January 25, at Battle Library in Oxford Road, Reading.
