About the Charity
Unfortunately, there is still a lot of misinformation around Autism, where people wish to class it as a learning disability. Figures from the show that it is almost a 50/50 split between Autistic people with an intellectual disability and those without. Despite these figures most services for Autistic Adults are tailored towards those who have a learning disability and require more in depth support/care.
We are here to listen to those who are lacking in appropriate services, to those who are on the Autism Spectrum and require support with things such as their career, further/higher education, social skills, relationships and much more.
About the Executive Committee
The Trustee Committee
The function of a Trustee Committee within a charity is to ensure the Charity is meeting it’s charitable aims and working in the best interests of it’s beneficiaries (people who benefit from the charity). Trustee’s are not allowed to financially gain from the Charity, so are all voluntary positions. They meet three to four times a year to discuss the needs of the Charity and to check the Executive Committee is doing it’s best to support that work.
We currently have three members on our Trustee Committee, all are diagnosed Autistic adults without intellectual disabilities. The information of Trustee’s are public knowledge and are viewable on the Charity Commission website, simply search for Autistic Nottingham and our charity number 118 3725.
