The Transforming Autism Project is seeking a volunteer to join our team to lead the development of our ambitious and revolutionary new portal of original material for parents of autistic children. There is more information about our Hub in our brochure (see link below).
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.
We are planning a revolutionary new early intervention autism clinic based on Israel’s pioneering Mifne Centre (find out more and see one family’s story here), and also a comprehensive online Hub of resources and inspiration for parents and carers of autistic children.
To find out more about our goals, values and activities, please view our brochure.
Although we are currently new and very small, we will need to grow quickly in order to make progress towards our large-scale goals. We are therefore – through our wonderful volunteers - building a strong professional team so that we can put the infrastructure in place to have the scope to generate and cope with rapid growth.
We have a strong set of values that define our culture, and which we strive to adhere to at all times. They are based around the themes of Unconditional Respect, Courage and Purpose. There are more details on these here.
Transforming Autism's online Hub will completely redefine the way that parents of autistic children are supported through their journey. It is one place full of invaluable guidance about dealing with all aspects of life with an autistic child. As well as being fully comprehensive and thoroughly researched, it will also be extremely easy to navigate and access the required support, and also to assimilate that support. It will be simply presented with a lot of video content and easily digested tables of research results.
This role is to lead the creation of this Hub. We have a detailed blueprint for what the Hub will end up as, but require someone with real know-how in this area to ensure that we are well organised in the creation of this type of platform - especially in creating the processes and workflows that can make sure the required research is co-ordinated in the most efficient way to produce valuable content in a recognisable voice and format, including the involvement of an advisory panel.
An ability to oversee the development of the IT platform for this would also be useful, though this is not the primary purpose of this role.
You will have experience of overseeing the creation and management of extensive online support materials and an excellent understanding of optimal ways to achieve this. You will have the confidence to oversee the creation of such a system.
We are a strongly values-driven organisation, and are committed to manifesting our values in how we relate to each other, in what we are trying to achieve and in how we do it. You will be in complete resonance with these and dedicated to bringing them into all of your work and interactions.

How Many Hours?
This is flexible and can be discussed, however for a lead role such as this, our experience is that it requires at least 10 hours or so spread through the week.
The Transforming Autism Project is dedicated to helping create a world where all people are valued and treated according to their inner essential humanity rather than according to the many labels that each of us could wear (or that could be attached to us). We are thus naturally an equal opportunities organisation.
