Empowering People, Launching lives

Chair of Trustees

We have undergone a remarkable transformation and growth over the past 20 years. We now run an Early Years’ services, Independent Special Schools, and Post-19 provision. We also run Outreach and Training services for parents, carers, professionals and mainstream schools, as well as a Research and Learning hub, set up to provide professionals and families with a way of engaging with clinical research in the field of autism, and understanding the practical applications.

As a result of our founder and current Chair, Karen Sorab OBE, stepping down, we are now seeking to appoint a new Chair to lead our board of Trustees, and work with the Chief Executive and her team to increase our size, reach and impact and make our ambitious new strategy a reality.

This is an exciting, non-executive, unremunerated role, at a time of significant opportunities and change that will give challenge and reward in equal measure.
