Autism Spectrum Australia (ASPECT) – Bring your hands-on skills to Autism and help for big events


About the opportunities


Aspect Working Bees – NSW and VIC

Our autism specific schools and services always need a hand with gardening, painting or room makeovers, so if you are a hands-on group of people this might be the right thing for you.

Requirements:

Our organisational volunteers cover all associated costs – e.g. for wall paint or other DIY
Materials: Alternatively, we kindly ask your organisation for a donation which directly benefits those living with autism


Aspect Combined Schools Sports Carnival – NSW

Don’t miss out on this very special event where more than 600 students from our autism specific schools get together with their families and friends to participate in the world’s biggest athletics carnival for children with autism. We will keep you busy with marshalling duties, helping with facilitating the various fun activities or entertaining our students in funny mascot costumes which can be a tough job on a 30⁰C day.

Requirements:

Every volunteer needs a valid Working With Children Check

As the event comes with expenses for the venue, catering and Sports Carnival equipment, we kindly ask your organisation to help us covering these costs by making a donation towards our Sports Carnival event.


Aspect Camps – VIC

Aspect hosts 3-day camps for children and young people on the autism spectrum a couple of times a year and needs enthusiastic people who help out with a range of different activities such as art & craft, dancing, bush walking, volley ball or meal preparation.

Requirements:

Every volunteer needs the following checks:
– Working With Children Check (WWCC)
– National Police Criminal History Check
– Disability Worker Exclusion Scheme Check


Aspect Events – NSW and VIC

If you enjoy being involved in events – whether it’s a major sports event like the City2Surf or a golf day – this might be the right volunteering activity for you.
