Volunteering is fun, rewarding and a great opportunity to meet new people, become more involved in your community and make a real difference. You can develop your existing skills and gain new ones. Volunteering is a great way of enhancing your CV and we can even provide a reference for a future employer.

Whatever your circumstances – whether you are working, a student, or retired – we need your help and we have volunteering opportunities to suit everyone.

Whether you want to support individuals or groups, upcycle some furniture or volunteer for a weekly shift in one of our charity shops, there’s plenty you can do to improve the lives of people affected by autism.

Autism Sussex is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.


Where can I volunteer?

Our current volunteering opportunities are based in East Sussex. Here’s how you can get involved where you live:

Hastings, St Leonards-on-Sea, Bexhill, Hampden Park, Seaford, Heathfield and Portslade. Visit our East Sussex page for more information. For general enquiries about volunteering, please email volunteering@autismsussex.org.uk or phone 01424 773366 x 113 and speak to our Volunteer Coordinator, Sarah Clements.
