The Transforming Autism Project is seeking a volunteer to join our team to help create & manage our online community and/or develop our revolutionary new portal for parents of autistic children.
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.
We are planning a revolutionary new early intervention autism clinic based on Israel’s pioneering Mifne Centre (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.
This role is to help us to develop our portal (more details in our brochure). We envisage this having 2 key parts (please also get in touch if you feel you are able to support just one of these):
1 – To create and develop an online community which will be key to inspiring, reviewing and inputting into/participating in the Hub’s creation, and will also be used for Market Research relating to the Hub.
2 – To create the processes to co-ordinate how to use this input and others to develop final content for the Hub via our team of researchers and writers (to be developed).
You will be very confident in either or both of managing online community groups, keeping people engaged and interactive; and developing online portals.
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.
