Here at Sycamore Trust U.K., we pride ourselves on delivering tailor-made projects for people on the Autistic Spectrum and, as such, we are always looking for new volunteers to join our friendly volunteering team.

18-25 Social Club:

Volunteers are needed to support adults with autism on the 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. This is more of a social group where the members get together to chat, play on iPads and go on trips to the bowling alley, cinema and local restaurants.

We need dedicated volunteers with life-experience to support our SPACE project participants in one to one sessions to help them improve and boost their skills to enable them to become ready for work.
