Volunteer and help us build an inclusive society for autistic people and their families. 

We rely heavily on our support group network, which continues to be the bedrock of our service steeped in the principles of community development where volunteer parents and carers provide advice and support to other parents.

We have a range of volunteering opportunities at our local Support Groups across Northern Ireland. Our Support Groups meet monthly and share support, information and advice to other parents and carers, as well as host family events and activities. All of our Support Groups operate differently and are bespoke to the group’s needs.  

Whatever your background, interests, or what time you have available, you'll find that volunteering with us is an incredibly rewarding experience. Volunteers play an invaluable role within Autism NI and our work would not be possible without the dedication of our volunteers freely giving up their time to make a difference for others.
