Autism Spectrum Australia – Lend your hands-on skills to ASPECT for Autism Australia


Come and lend Aspect (Autism Spectrum Australia) a hand in a fun and rewarding way by volunteering as an organisation.


About the opportunities


Aspect Working Bees – NSW and VIC

Aspect 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.

Time Commitment: Weekdays 9:30am – 3:30pm

Requirements: Organisational volunteers cover all associated costs- e.g. for wall paint or other DIY.

Materials: Alternatively, Aspect kindly asks 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. Aspect will keep you busy with marshalling duties, helping with facilitating the various fun activities or entertaining the students in funny mascot costumes which can be a tough job on a 30⁰C day.

Time commitment: Weekdays 8:30am – 1:30am

Location: Sydney Olympic Park Athletic Centre

Requirements: Every volunteer needs a valid Working With Children Check

As the event comes with expenses for the venue, catering and Sports Carnival equipment, Aspect kindly asks your organisation to help cover these costs by making a donation towards the Sports Carnival event.
