Jobs & Volunteering
The Aldingbourne Trust cares about its staff – we believe that to provide fantastic support to our clients, our employees need to be treated well.
We are seeking an autism consultant to join our LIMA team to work in a Low-Intensity Management Approach with adults around issues relating to people’s autism spectrum condition, providing timely and easily accessible support, signposting to other services; and drawing on experience in autism to identify people who may be in need of more formal, therapeutic or social care support.
Our support focuses on post-diagnostic and social skills support that covers specific issues faced by customers with autism on a daily basis, such as: negative social experiences; the need to clarify social experiences; ways of promoting independence; help to develop coping strategies; and to act as a sounding-board for people that may not have family or friends they feel able to confide in. We can signpost people to advocacy and other appropriate autism-friendly community-based support, based on our team’s knowledge and expertise. We also provide guidance to mainstream services on how they can support people who have autism.
We offer group, individual, online & telephone support. Our sessions are based in Horsham & Worthing, & we work across West Sussex. The role involves home working and face to face sessions in Horsham and Worthing.
This is a part time role of 20 hours per month (work pattern to be confirmed at interview).
The closing date for this role is Monday 20th September 2021.
