With nearly 230 employees, we offer support to approximately 130 adults with autism and provide assistance and guidance to over 250 individuals with autism each year.

While we welcome applications from individuals of all backgrounds, those with a good business acumen or experience or interest in charity management, business management human resources, fundraising, or experience in adult social care may be of benefit to the charity.

Our Board convenes four times a year, supplemented by sub-committee meetings. Whilst some meetings are conducted via Teams, we do try to meet in person where possible.

We are committed to encouraging a diverse Board of Trustees and encourage applications from individuals of all ethnic backgrounds. However, to maintain the confidentiality of those we support, we do not accept applications from individuals whose relatives receive support from Kingwood.

Please consider the role of the trustee and share the attributes, skills, and experiences you would bring to the role. For further details about Autism at Kingwood and the Trustee role, please contact Anne Asprey, Head of HR for a brief.
